Penne, Peppers, and Chicken-Apple Sausage Saute

Rated as 3.89 out of 5 Stars

"This recipe originated with my son, who makes it with very spicy chicken sausages. I loved it so much that I adapted it to suit our taste. Because my husband prefers less spicy food, I use milder chicken-apple sausage. This is one of our favorite dinners."

  1. Fill a large pot with lightly salted water and bring to a boil. Stir in penne and return to a boil. Cook pasta uncovered, stirring occasionally, until cooked through but still firm to the bite, about 11 minutes; drain.
  2. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Cook and stir peppers until slightly tender, about 7 minutes. Stir in onions and cook until onions soften and turn golden, 7 minutes. Add garlic and cook 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  3. Stir sausage slices into onions and peppers, reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer for 10 minutes.
  4. Stir drained penne into sausage and onions and reduce heat to low. Season with garlic and herb seasoning, sea salt, and pepper to taste.

This dish is great for a simple weeknight meal. I only ended up using 1 16-ounce box of pasta and it was plenty.
