One Pot Fajita Veggie Pasta

This dish is SO GOOD and was a huge hit at my work potluck! I used a secret ingredient in here again and everyone thought that I had added meat in this pot… WHEN I DID NOT!

The secret ingredient? Field Roast Chipotle Sausage Links! (They are vegetarian) :). These soy based sausage links are SO good and so flavorful that it is worth putting in any pasta OR even eating as a hotdog!
