Recipe by MJdeCA
"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."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

This dish is great for a simple weeknight meal. I only ended up using 1 16-ounce box of pasta and it was plenty.
This is delicious -- WITH the addition of a can of diced tomatoes with seasoning, as this is very dry. I made this with about 1/3 of the penne pasta, but followed the recipe for everything else and it was still dry. I put generous parmesan cheese on top. YUM!!
I added chopped zucchini and one less red pepper; and a can of diced tomato, along with some seasoning. Sprinkled with cheese upon serving. Quick easy dish, a little dry even with the extra tomato. Used Dreamfield Pasta to lower carbs.
Yummy! Used whole wheat penne, then added white wine and parmesan, based on Ann's recommendation. Also added some italian seasoning, and crushed red pepper flakes at the end (my husband loves spicy foods), to add some zest! Would be great paired with a green salad. Easy and inexpensvie weeknight meal.
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.
