Creamy, rich and filling. Serve this with a nice green salad and a big loaf of garlic bread. My little girl absolutely loves this. The bonus is: you can have this on the table in about 30 minutes.

Great pasta dish and so quick and easy to make! I made a few minor changes, none that I think really changed the flavor...I used red peppers instead of green (personal preference), shallot instead of onion and crimini mushrooms that I cut in half so they were still big enough for DH to pick out. The sauce was simple and very flavorful. The mild sausage gave it a nice flavor without being spicy. I would make this again! Made for Everyday Holiday.
