Johnsonville Italian Sausage SheSpeaks Recipe Review

Thanks to SheSpeaks, my family had the chance to try the Johnsonville Four Cheese Italian Sausage.  
I usually purchase the Johnsonville Sweet Basil or Hot Sausage for pasta dishes but decided to use my coupons to purchase a new flavor.  We tried out the Four Cheese Italian sausage and it worked GREAT with the pasta dish and I plan on buying it again and again!

I also received a coupon for Francesco Rinaldi.(click to read a review) pasta sauce which is all natural, fresh and delicious! I have to go to another town to purchase this sauce but it is well worth it.  I've asked my 2 local stores to carry it so hopefully they will in the future.
This is a quick and easy recipe that you can made on a very short notice.  The prep time is nothing like real lasagna!  Dive in...
