You guys – we LOVE pasta!

That should be no surprise if you’ve been to the site before. We are constantly sharing delicious dinner recipes, and many of them happen to be pasta dishes. Usually some sort of meat is involved too, and today’s recipe has sausage. I admit I wasn’t a huge fan of sausage growing up, but fortunately my taste buds have changed and I LOVE it!

Today’s recipe was inspired by one I spotted on Allrecipes a few months ago. It had cheese, pasta and sausage which was good enough reason for me to give it a try. I ended up changing a few things and ended up making it even better by adding some cream cheese. You guys – this Creamy Sausage Penne Bake was FANTASTIC! In fact, everyone who tried it (which includes my fam and a family from church) gave it rave reviews. You guys know I’m not only about delicious recipes, but easy ones too and this one is very simple. Here is what you’ll need to make this dish:
