{Recipe} Spicy Sausage Pasta

I am always looking for fast and easy weeknight meals.  This super tasty dish fits all the requirements and then some.  Not only is it fast and easy, but it is a one pot meal.  Perfect for weeknights!  

I found this recipe at the blog of  Kevin and Amanda.  I have tried several of the recipes on their blog, like Bacon Cheeseburger Chicken.  I adapted this recipe a bit to make a bit more to feed my family of five.
