When I get to the grocery store to buy the sauce, the pastas were in the same aisle and I thought "Man, penne pasta would go sooo much better with these sausages" So I picked up a box of multigrain penne. As I'm walking to the checkout I stop by the frozen section and (Light Bulb!) "Some garlic bread would be a great kick too!" *Picked up a box of cibatta garlic bread* This really is the everyday story of a woman at Wal-Mart. You go in for one thing and always leave with a few more items lol.
So my journey in the kitchen begins with boiling the penne for about 12-15 minutes. As my penne was boiling I started on browning my sausages. I cut the sausages in pieces diagonally and added them to my pan with a couple tablespoons of oil. (You can use water instead.) I also cut up a quarter of a green pepper and added that to give the sausages a little more flavor. Once my sausages were browned, I added my pasta sauce. You can use whatever red sauce you prefer. I used a tomato garlic sauce. I let this simmer for about 10-15 minutes stirring occasionally. As my sauce simmered I preheated the oven to 425 for the garlic bread. Before putting the bread in the oven a added a touch of shredded Italian cheeses on top. I baked them until the edges were lightly browned. Everything took about an hour prep time and cooking. It came out amazing and it was quite simple to make! Here's the finished product:
Ingredients you need:
- 1/2 box of Penne pasta
- 1 jar of red pasta sauce
- 1 package of sausages (5 links)
- 1/4 green peppers (chopped)
- 2 tablespoons of oil
- 1 box of Garlic Bread
My husband absolutely enjoyed it. He said he was speechless lol.
