italian recipe help needed!

i am seeking a recipe for this rigatoni dish i had recently. it had fresh italian sausage chunks, hot cherry peppers, in a light tomato sauce. can anyone help me with a recipe, pretty please? and does the dish have a specific name? i've googled, and found similar dishes on menus, but no recipes....
If you can’t find the recipe you’re looking for, perhaps you could play around with a recipe that’s close and make some of your own substitutions. For instance, here’s a rigatoni with sausage recipe from Epicurious:
Instead of the arugula, you could substitute sautéed peperoncini and for the canned tomatoes, substitute a light tomato sauce such as this one.
folks, i made the rigatoni dish and with a light tomato sauce, as joanN suggested.
but, warning: in adding cherry peppers to the dish like i'd had at the italian restaurant, do NOT use the cherry peppers labeled "hot". just use the regular whole cherry peppers, halved and seeded. the "hot " ones i used were downright incendiary!
