IntroductionMy brother gave me this recipes years ago. We both make it several times during the winter and even in the warmer months! Add some garlic bread from the grill and you've got a meal!

Return to boiling, reduce heat and simmer covered for 10-15 minutes or until the pasta and vegetables are tender. Sprinkle with pasrmesan cheese if desired.

You could probably substitute turkey sausage, low sodium and low fat beef broth and low sodium or fresh tomatoes to lower the sodium in this recipe. I've also used mini penne pasta the last couple of times I made this and they are just perfect for it.
Number of Servings: 8
