Penne with Vegetables and Kielbasa


6 oz. (2 cups) uncooked penne pasta (tube-shaped pasta)
1 medium red bell pepper, cut into 1-inch pieces
1 small onion, cut into thin wedges
1 (9 oz.) pkg. frozen sugar snap peas
1/2 lb. kielbasa, sliced
1/2 cup milk
8 oz. Velveeta, cubed


Cook penne as directed on package. Drain; cover to keep warm. Meanwhile, heat 12-inch nonstick skillet or Dutch oven over medium-high heat until hot. Add bell pepper, onion and sugar snap peas; cook 4-5 minutes or until vegetables are crisp-tender, stirring frequently. Drain, if necessary.

Reduce heat to medium. Add kielbasa, milk and cheese to vegetables. Cook over medium heat for 3 to 4 minutes or until cheese is melted and sauce is smooth, stirring constantly.

Add cooked penne; stir gently to coat. Cook 1 to 2 minutes or until thoroughly heated, stirring occasionally.

Makes 4 servings
