Penne with Sausage and Peppers

Looking for a meal that has rich bold flavors?

This Penne with Sausage and Peppers is the answer!

I’m trying to feed my family meals that don’t contain MSG, or fillers, or artificial flavors and colors (this is sometimes very difficult to do). I was happy when I came upon Jack Link’s Wild Side Sausages while I was shopping at Walmart in their package deli refrigerator section of the store.  Jack Link’s quality, tradition, and great tasting sausage go back over 100 years.  Plus, their sausages are high in protein and they have that delicious bold flavor my family loves.

I couldn’t wait to get some home and combine it with a pasta and cream sauce.  The only problem was deciding which flavor to buy.  I couldn’t decide, so I got 2, the Original and the Jalapeño Flavor.  I’ll pick up the Jack Link’s Wild Side Sausages Cheddar Flavor, next time.

Once I tried Jack Link’s Wild Side Sausage I knew I had a winning meal on my hands that my family would love.  They are great alone or in a recipe and because they are fully cooked, the meal comes together quickly.

    This looks great! I’ve been wanting to try some recipes with sausage, since I don’t typically make it. But combining it with penne will definitely make it more likely that my kids will eat it- I’m trying this!
