Penne with Sausages

    40 minutes

    This pasta dish is quick but elegant. The spiciness of the sauce can easily be adjusted as well, as the flavour is wonderful either mild or hot.

    Delicious combination that we have used in our household for years. I substituted homemade sauce for jar sauce and used spicy chicken sausage to cut down on the fat.  -  21 Aug 2008  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    This is a good recipe. I used a pound of ground mild sausage because that is what I had on hand. I only used a teaspoon of the basil because I ran out. I think that was plenty. More than that would be overwhelming. Next time I won't add as much parsley. Other than that it was a great recipe that I will make again. My one year old even liked it!  -  14 Jun 2008  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    This pasta was great! We made it with italian turkey sausage to bring down the fat and calories even more and it was delicious! Will definately make again.  -  06 Dec 2007  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
