Creamy Sausage and Peppers

We...well K really LOVES anything with italian sausage so it makes our way into the menu when I find it on sale. Lucky for him I scored a really good sale a couple weeks ago and stocked up on it(and did again today). At the Taste of Home Cooking Show, this was one of the recipes and I knew K would enjoy it. I made it last night for dinner and it made quite a bit of food, he went on to enjoy 2 helpings last night, again for lunch, and again for dinner tonight. Needless to say, he REALLY liked it and it was so simple!

Creamy Sausage and Peppers-from Taste Of Home
1 lb italian sausage, sliced
1 red pepper,sliced
1 green pepper,sliced
1 onion, sliced
1 tsp fennel seed
2 garlic cloves minced
4 oz cream cheese, cubed
1-26 oz jar of pasta sauce
3-4 cups uncooked macaroni

Cook sausage until no longer pink, add in peppers, onion, and garlic. Saute until tender. Meanwhile, cook pasta.

Once sausage is done, pour in sauce and cream cheese. Stir until melted and heated through. Once macaroni is done, drain and add to sauce. Sprinkle with grated parmesan cheese and enjoy!

**You can use any kind of sweet peppers you like. I also use 1/3 less fat cream cheese.

  1. That looks yummy -- we love peppers, so this looks like something we'd enjoy.

  2. Thanks to Mommy's Kitchen for providing a link.

    This would definitely be a winner at any potluck.
