Easy Sausage & Penne Dinner

sausage 1

This is something I threw together for a simple quick dinner one night for my boyfriend and I. We were both craving sausage, but we didn’t want it in the same way we usually eat it. The great thing about this recipe is that even the most novice cook, could prepare this for their family.
