This Sausage and Mushroom Penne Recipe is a quick dish that can be put together after work. This is a one dish meal so you don’t have worry about doing a lot of dishes after supper. I usually shy away from recipes that call for cooking the pasta as part of the dish instead of separately, but this dish surprised me; the pasta was done perfectly. Basically this is a simple recipe that doesn’t require a lot of ingredients, and is quick to prepare. This is a mildly seasoned recipe so you could spice it up a little more if you wanted to.
