  1. You can substitute another protein like chicken, shrimp or Italian sausage. Just cook it in the pan before warming up the sauce (step 3) and adjust cooking time as needed.
  2. If desired, you can substitute another noodle. Just make sure to consider the cooking time for the noodles and make sure they are ready when the sauce is warmed through. You don’t want to leave the sauce simmering for too long, it will dry out.
