Penne, Peppers, and Chicken-Apple Sausage Saute

Recipe by  

"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."

Directions

  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.

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.
