Roasted Garlic Chicken Sausage with Penne

 12 oz package roasted garlic chicken sausage
 8 oz Colavita Whole Wheat Penne Rigate
 2 tbsp Colavita Extra Virgin Olive Oil
 3 tbsp Colavita Sun-dried Tomatoes, packed in oil, drained and chopped
 3 tbsp sliced kalamata olives
 5 oz baby arugula, divided
 8 oz goat cheese, broken into large chunks
 salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste

Cook the pasta according to package directions, drain, reserving ½ cup of the pasta water


Cook the sausage over medium heat in a small amount of olive oil until browned. Remove from the skillet and set-aside.


Heat the oil in a large saute pan set over medium heat; add the cooked pasta along with the sun-dried tomatoes and olives, cook, tossing well until all is coated with oil; add ¾ of the bag of arugula and half the goat cheese. Toss until the arugula is wilted and the cheese is melted; adding pasta water if it seems to dry.


Cut the sausage on the bias, spoon the pasta mixture into warmed bowls, top with remaining arugula, goat cheese and sausage.
