This recipe was delicious. My husband and I made it together. He'd like a little more pasta, too. We used ground turkey which was all we had. I think the turkey sausage links were probably more flavorful. I didn't want to add too much salt to the ground turkey. Thanks so much, "mklida", for this recipe. We will be making it, again.

Six points per serving. For weight watchers and to get more bulk per serving, I may increase the penne and try it with half the amount of italian sausage. Sounds great though.
