It's always nice to have a no-fail go-to dinner on the menu. Well for me, it's pasta. Pasta dishes are so versatile! The days that I have leftover ingredients taking space in my pantry or fridge are the times that I come up with the best recipe ideas!
This pasta came together beautifully for me. As a bonus, it is packed with flavor, with a kick of spice from the sausage and a hint of zest from the Italian dressing. Needless to say, I am looking forward to the day i can reheat the leftovers from my freezer!
