We are having this for dinner tonight with garlic bread, haven't ever tried it before, but it sounds good. (I love, love, love trying new things!) I got it off the Good Morning America website. Enjoy!

1/4 C. olive oil
4 cloves garlic, peeled and mashed
1 lb. Italian sausage, cut into bite-sized pieces
1 lb. Savoy cabbage, cooked and chopped into bite-sized pieces
Salt and Pepper to taste
3 C. Marinara sauce
1 lb. Penne pasta
Freshly grated Pecorino Romano cheese (optional)

1. Heat oil in large saute pan over med. heat. Add sauasage and saute until done.
2. Add cabbage, salt, pepper and saute for 1-2 min. Stir in marinara sauce and cook 3-5min. until flavors have blended.
3. Meanwhile, cook penne in a large pot in rapidly boiling salted H20 until al-dente.
4. Drain pasta, and return it to the pot with 1/2 cup of sauce. Stir for 1 min over high heat, then place sauced pasta on serving platter and pour remaining sauce on top. Sprinkle with Romano cheese.
Serves 4.

You are so brave to try new things... I find that I am always cooking the same things! I should really try new recipes.

J and I really liked this dinner, R ate it, but without a smile and L got tired of it but ate it as well. It was the cabbage that got to them. J said he didn't even know the cabbage was there until afterwards when the kids grummped about it! I guess when I cook cabbage I shouldn't let the kids see me do it! But this recipe I'll use again.
