    In a heavy skillet over medium heat, brown sausage, ground beef, green pepper, onions, and garlic until meat is no longer pink and vegetables are softened, approximately 15 minutes. Drain off excess grease. Add the drained canned mushrooms, seasonings and heat thoroughly. Pour spaghetti sauce over meat and vegetable mixture in skillet and simmer uncovered for 20 minutes.

    Serve hot. Garnish with parmesan cheese, if desired.
