One Pot Sausage Penne Pasta

Hey friends! Welcome to Batter & Bounty - a little side project I have been working on!  Having always been a lover of good food, now that I have a kitchen of my own and a husband who also appreciates a good homemade meal, I have decided to try combining my love of photography with my love for cooking!

Ray and I try to have a once a month at home date night.  We open a bottle of wine and cook dinner together.  

I was searching Pinterest for something to make with our pantry ingredients and stumbled upon a recipe for a One-Pot Sausage Penne Pasta.  It looked simple and required little clean up so we decided to give it a shot.  We had most of the ingredients already, although I did change a couple of things to add a little more flavor and modify it a little based on what we had.  

It was a HUGE success!  Ray told me to keep this recipe because he will be requesting it often!
