NO MESS BAKED PENNE WITH SAUSAGE & PEPPERS

All you need to survive motherhood during a pandemic are a handful of ridiculously easy meals (...and coffee). You know, the kind you keep stored in your mental arsenal because they require so little bandwidth and so few ingredients. This is one of those dinners for us. It's a one pan situation with no need to boil the pasta in advance and very little clean-up.

WHAT YOU'LL NEED:

  • 1 tbs olive oil

  • 1 lb uncooked penne (we love Banza)

  • 4 chicken sausages, sliced into coins (I use Applegate brand)

  • 1 large bell pepper, sliced

  • 2 cups unsweetened almond milk

  • 1 24oz jar pasta sauce (Rao’s is king)

  • 2 tsp dried italian seasoning

  • baby arugula

DIRECTIONS:


PREHEAT oven to 400

MIX all ingredients but the arugula in a 9x13 baking dish greased with 1 tbs olive oil

BAKE for 40-45 min, tossing halfway thru

FOLD in a few big handfuls of arugula before serving


I hope your family loves this one as much as mine does. It's honestly even better the second day for lunch leftovers. Enjoy;)
