Penne With Sausage, Tomato, Red Pepper in Cream Sauce

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by VickyJ

This is something I came up with when I didn't allow myself enough time to prepare dinner. The meat and veggies were supposed to be a filling for a stromboli, then I ended up using it for this pasta dish instead. It turned out to be a delicious dinner treat! You can change to ground beef, other peppers, pasta or a different cheese.

An awesome pasta dish!!! I had a few mushrooms that needed to be used so I added those in with the sausage an onions. I also had only 1 cup of whipping cream so made up the balance with milk and a little corn starch to compensate. Not a low calorie meal by any means but so scrumptious. DH has already asked that we make it a regular here. I added some shaved Parmesan and some fresh basil before serving and would feel comfortable serving this to any company.
