Sun Dried Sausage & Penne

This is just one of my made up recipes that we have really enjoyed. It's one of those easy dishes that can be thrown together in 20 minutes and everyone really likes.

1/2-3/4 of a box of Penne noodles (or whatever pasta you like)
5 chicken sausages ((At Sam's Club they have these sausages seen in the picture- several different flavors- our favorite is Chicken and Apple) If you don't have a Sam's, any klebasa type sausage will work- Chicken ones are a lot more healthy and lower in fat and calories)
2 large tablespoons of Sun Dried Tomato Basil Pesto (you can get this -seen in the above picture) at any grocery store next to the pasta sauces. I also use the regular pesto too and it's great as well.

Slice the sausages on an angle and fry in a skillet, dump in the cooked noodles and stir in the pesto. Serve with a fresh spinach salad and you have a great meal.
