I made this with Italian sausage instead of the bacon...everyone loved it sooo much that I canned it...making little sausage balls out of ground sausage and leaving out the pasta till time to reheat it

I made this tonight and it turned out great. My husband said it was a keeper. I added some deer burger to mine.

Great! I like to make mine with smoked sausage. I use the equivalent of 1 1/2 sausage patty.
