Slow Cooker Italian Sausage and Penne!
Last night's dinner turned out really good, I made some Buttered Mashed Potatoes to go with the Swiss Steak and it was YUMMY. The recipe is just beneath this one if you're interested in giving it a try.
For dinner tonight, and continuing with our Slow Cooker week, I have another recipe from the same Gooseberry Patch cookbook, can't wait to try it.
So here's what's in my crockpot right now:
3/4 lb. hot italian sausage links, cut into bite-size pieces (I used mild italian sausage)
1 red pepper, chopped
1/2 onion, chopped
26-oz. jar spaghetti sauce
6-oz. penne pasta, cooked.
Stir together all ingredients except pasta in a slow cooker. Cover and cook on low setting for 7 to 8 hours. At serving time, stir in cooked pasta. Makes 4 servings.
A hearty dish like Italian Sausage and Penne is perfect on a cool autumn night. Carry the crock right out to your backyard picnic table and savor the fall colors with your family.
