20 Minute Sausage Penne Skillet

20 minutes skillet Penne with sausage

I am totally in love with this 20 Minute Sausage Penne Skillet right now. It’s everything I want in a weeknight dinner: quick, simple, bold flavors, and little cleanup. Even though it’s a pasta dish, it doesn’t use any heavy cream sauces so it still tastes light and refreshing. I almost always have the ingredients used on hand so it’s quick to throw together for lunch, a weeknight dinner, or when unexpected guests arrive.

Be sure not to sub the kalamata olives or the sun dried tomatoes because these are going to take your dish to the next level and really make the flavors stand out! I love keeping a jar of the olives and tomatoes in my fridge and adding them into ordinary recipes to make them extraordinary.
