Penne Pasta Recipe
Pasta is such a great weeknight dinner choice. You can dress it up in so many different ways, which is probably why it makes an appearance a couple times each week in our house. I developed a new pasta recipe for you today that literally only has a few ingredients which makes it so great for weeknight cooking! I had so much fun sitting back and watching my boys devour this pasta recipe.

I used a mini penne pasta for this recipe, however feel free to use whatever small pasta your family enjoys most.
Add your pasta to browned sausage and give a good stir.
Add your bag of Green Giant™ Broccoli, Carrots, Cauliflower and Cheese Sauce and dinner is about ready! Stir in a few splashes of milk, garlic salt and freshly ground black pepper then you are ready to go.
Nothing like a hot bowl of flavorful pasta for dinner. The entire family is going to love this one!
Before, I would just whip up pasta with some sausage or ground beef which the kids enjoy but I love that by adding those cheesy vegetables you get a whole new dinner idea that could not be more simple.
