    1 hour

    This is an interesting pasta stew I came up with when all I had was tomatoes and kielbasa. It's very warm and satisfying!

    This is a really good recipe. I made a couple of changes, including using low-fat turkey kielbasa, mushrooms, garlic salt, red-pepper flakes, and a couple dashes of Essence. I also omitted the oil and used a non-stick skillet. Will make again!  -  09 Jan 2002  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    This was easy but I did not like it.  -  12 Dec 2000  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Sprayed pan with cooking spray and sauteed sausage; drained as much grease as possible. Put 1 large diced onion and one diced red bell pepper in pan with sausage and cooked until the tender; sprinkled with garlic powder. Used 1 can diced tomatoes and 15 oz can tomato sauce. Cooked whole grain penne separately and added in at end of cooking time. Hubby loved it.  -  10 Sep 2008  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
