Gochujang Peppers & Onion Penne with Chicken Sausage

By Mabel of Miss Hangry Pants

"They're already fully cooked, so I just browned the sides to give it a nice color, chopped it up and then added it to the pasta. The sweetness of the peppers and Italian herbs in the sausage played so well with the gochujang tomato sauce with a little bit of kick from the Korean chili powder."
