Bake Penne (Latino Inspired)

Bake Penne (Latino Inspired)


This scrumptious fusion dish is so easy to make at home

The classic Italian dish baked penne gets a little kick of south-of-the-border flavor with spicy peppers and a dash of cumin.

This recipe is courtesy of Johnsonville and Fabio Viviani. Their new digital food series “Dinner Is Served” will kick off on April 6.

Notes

To de-case the sausage:

With the tip of a knife, cut the sausage along the top of the link, end to end. Be sure not to cut all the way through the sausage.

Flip sausage over, cut side down.

Grab the split casing on one end with your thumb and forefinger and pull back the casing.

To make the process a bit easier, place the uncooked sausage in the freezer for about 15–20 minutes before slicing. The sausage will firm up a bit, which will help prevent the meat from sticking to the casing.

Ingredients

  • 1 package (16 ounces) penne pasta
  • 1 package (16 ounces) Johnsonville Ground Hot Italian Sausage or 1 package (19 ounces) Johnsonville Hot Italian Sausage Links, casings removed
