Ingredients

    1 13.25 oz box of BARILLA Whole Grain Penne Pasta

    1 package (4 links) Al Fresco Chicken Sausage (I used Sweet Apple Maple Syrup, but the Italian pepper one is good, too. The links are 160 calories each, so you can substitute brands, if needbe)
    2 TBS Olive oil
    1/2 large onion, chopped
    1 cup fresh spinach
    1 14.5 ounce diced tomatoes, drained

    3 cups Normandy Blend veggies, chopped
    1 bell pepper, chopped
    1 2.25 oz can of sliced black olives, drained

    1/2 cup Newman's Own Lighten Up Italian Dressing
    1/2 cup plain, nonfat yogurt
    salt and pepper to taste

Directions

Boil water, and cook pasta thoroughly.

While pasta is cooking, heat oil in a pan. Add onions and sausage. Cook until caramelized.
**At this point, if you want your bell peppers cooked, add now If not, add at the end...
Add drained tomato sauce. Add spinach, and stir until wilted. Remove from heat.

When pasta is finished, add Normandy blend, and bring back to a boil. Strain, and chop larger veggies. Add olives and the meat mixture. When cooled, add, vinaigrette and yogurt. Salt and pepper to taste. (If you prefer raw bell peppers, add them here.)
