My wife picked up some smoked sausage on sale at our local market (was such a good price she couldn’t resist).  I was planning on some type of casserole dish for supper so I decided to give this Smoked Sausage with Penne Recipe a try.

This is a simple recipe that doesn’t require a lot of prep or cooking time. The end result is a cheesy and rice casserole dish. Give this one a try it’s really good!!
