    My husband who loves Italian dishes was getting bored with the same ones, so I made this one day for dinner and the whole family loved it! I hope you will too!

    • 1 large yellow onion, chopped
    • 1 red capsicum, seeded and diced

    1. Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add penne pasta, and cook until tender, about 10 minutes. Drain.
    2. Place the Italian sausage links in a small skillet over medium heat. Cook, turning occasionally until firm and cooked through.
    3. In a separate larger skillet, combine the red and green capsicum, mushrooms, and Italian dressing. Cook and stir until the vegetables are tender, about 5 minutes. Slice the Italian sausages into rounds, and stir into the vegetables. Continue to cook and stir for another 5 minutes.

    I tried this recipe for a pot luck dinner last night and it got rave reviews! I gave the recipe out to 2 different people. I only changed a few things - I added a can of crushed tomatoes and just a pinch of fresh basil. VERY delicious! A keeper for sure!  -  03 Oct 2004  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I very cautious on the meals I prepare for my picky husband, but this is one dish he enjoyed! He came back for seconds and thirds. There is one or two things I would change though, I would add a little more italian dressing and intead of placing it over the pasta, I would combine it all and then add the parmesan cheese once you serve it onto the plates.... (you can even cut up the sausage) I will defintely make this again!  -  19 May 2005  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
