"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." — MJdeCA

This dish is great for a simple weeknight meal. I only ended up using 1 16-ounce box of pasta and it was plenty.
Made this after searching for "chicken apple sausage" as a way to use it. I halved the recipe due to having only one red bell pepper. I added a splash of white wine during cooking and topped with grated parmesan. I don't have any "Mrs. Dash" type seasonings, so threw in some thyme, parsley, a little oregano and paprika. I used closer to 3 tbs. grapeseed oil (3x what is called for in olive oil for half recipe) but there wasn't enough sauce. Pasta was dry half way through eating. Overall, the dish flavor was good. Very easy and different. Would make again.
