Reviews for Penne Sausage Bake
"Very good and easy to make."
"This was relatively quick to make, but the result was a dish that seemed like a lot of time went into. It was delicious and my husband had seconds (and we had leftovers for lunch). I will definitely be making this again!"
"This is definitely a keeper. This made a 9x13 pan for me although I didn't measure everything exactly just threw stuff in. I'll double the green peppers next time and add some mushrooms. I added some ground pepper, just a personal preference."
"Very satisfying and tasty. This is a great fall/winter dish."
"Have made this recipe many times for family & company, it is delicious! The only change I made was to use my own homemade tomato sauce.*****"
"Good recipe! Our family of four liked this, and It made enough that I can freeze half the casserole for another night. I will probably try adding minced garlic clove next time."
"I have made this recipe multiple times and it comes out great every time. However I use pork sausage. It's a pretty big recipe, if you use leftover just add a little pasta sauce and it's good to go."
"I wasn't able to find the Italian Turkey sausages so just used sweet italian sausage. It added a bit more fat, but it was a great dish and so easy to make."
