Spicy Baked Penne Pasta

Happy St. Patrick's Day! As most know, we had our St. Patrick's Day dinner yesterday. Today we are enjoying a family favorite. Both my husband and I love spicy foods and this Spicy Baked Penne has hot italian sausage and spicy arrabiata marinara sauce. If you like spice, then you have to give this dish a try. It's delicious!

16 oz. Penne Pasta (I used Ronzoni)

Cook pasta to al dente. Drain and set aside.
