Directions

  1. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook penne at a boil, stirring occasionally, until tender yet firm to the bite, about 11 minutes; drain and transfer pasta to a bowl.
  2. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook and stir sausage in the hot skillet until browned and crumbly, 5 to 7 minutes; add to pasta.
  3. Whisk pesto sauce mix, milk, and olive oil together in a small saucepan; bring to a boil while stirring constantly. Reduce heat to low and keep at a simmer until thickened, about 3 minutes; pour over pasta and sausage mixture and toss to coat.

Super easy and very quick, as promised. I don't know if there's a difference between "creamy pesto sauce mix" and regular, but I had regular on hand and it was delicious. Served with a side of steamed broccoli. Was gobbled up by the whole family, even the picky 2yr old.
