Oh, boy, this is good. Other than cutting up all the peppers, or maybe in spite of cutting up all the peppers (and slicing 6 cloves of garlic), this was a relatively quick and easy dish to make. And, tasty? Yessiree, Bob!

Thanks for the review!
As soon as DH saw this recipe, he started drooling. But I've had good sausage & peppers and BAD sausage & peppers. Good to know that this is one of the good ones!

Finally got to try this one last night and I loved it! DH, on the other hand, didn't care for it too much - peppers don't sit too well with him some days. :eek:
Anyway, this was relatively quick and easy to prepare... also, I think just making it w/o the pasta would be fine - it would make GREAT sandwiches!

I thought while preparing this dish that because of its simplicity, it would lend itself to being an "average" dinner. Not so!!! First, I sauteed Trader Joe's Sundried Tomato and Basil Chicken sausages. Then, I sauteed slices of green and red pepper along with a sweet onion and threw in minced garlic and added back the sliced sausage. I then heated up a frozen portion of Lindrusso's marinara and dished out the penne, sauced it, then dolloped a serving of the sausage and peppers with a sprinkling of parmesan (ommitted mozarella entirely). The flavors of the sausage and peppers just made this dish. DH raved and raved - this was just too easy - I almost feel guilty! :D

DH loved this recipe. He is already asking when we will have again. I thought it was pretty good too (and I don't care for peppers.) I used hot turkey sausage and it was nice and spicy. We both agreed it would make great sandwiches.

I made this last night and it was great! I used herb and garlic chicken sausages, and left out the mozzarella (by accident - it was sitting in the fridge and I just forgot) but I don't think I'd actually want to put mozzarella in, it tastes so good.
Thanks for the recipe!

I liked it, too. I used the same sausage in this and the All American Chili -- hot turkey sausage.
