Very Yummy! I tweaked a bit to make it alittle more diet friendly. I used Kraft Free Zesty Italian Dressing, Whole Wheat Pasta, & of course some garlic powder, onion powder, & seasoned pepper. I did add alittle estra broccoli and threw in some red(purple) onion slices but it was so delicious! My 3 Year old calls it the Hot Dog pasta with trees lol :)
This was ok. I'm not sure the cheese and dressing went very well together. We had to salt and pepper it at the table.
I gave this five stars only after I ELIMINATED ITALIAN DRESSING and replaced it with same amount extra virgin olive oil, added some garlic powder, generous with S&P, and at the end when combining all hot cooked ingredients add about 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese. Give or take with the cheese and olive oil as you prefer. But WOW! Soooooo goooood!! MUST TRY THIS WAY!
I'd never tried chicken sausage - highly recommended - YUM. The peppers are a must add. It adds a needed slight sweetness. Delicious recipe.
Be careful. I had never tried rigatoni. It's a heavy pasta. I may try the same recipe with a lighter pasta.
I decided to make this dish for dinner and my family absolutely loved it!!! They can't wait for me to make it again!!!
This was a great meal when looking for a quick and easy dinner recipe. I did change a few things but only because I didn't have dressing on hand and didn't want so much oil. I sauteed a diced up zucchini with 1/2 an onion, added the sliced up sausage and heated thoroughly. I then added a can of Italian style diced tomatoes to the pan along with s/p to taste. Mixed with pasta and topped with cheese. Very yummy and everyone loved it!
I made this because it was a quick and easy recipe to try after a busy workday. Grumpy was not thrilled that I had chosen this recipe (he is not a fan of peppers) but of course, you don't bite the hand that feeds you! It was not a disappointing dish at all and we both thoroughly enjoyed it. I halved the recipe and it was perfect for the two of us. Will make this again for sure when needing something quick and easy! The only thing I did differently was I used a light dressing for less calories.
Loved this! I did make a few modifications. We don't care for italian dressing so I subbed olive oil and I steamed the broccoli first so it would be tender. This was the first time I had ever tried the 3 cheese chicken sausage and we really like it. I will be making this again.
