Penne with Italian Sausage, Green Pepper, and Onions in a Tomato Sauce
2 Italian Sausages, taken out of the casing and cut into bite-sized pieces
1 small green pepper, chopped
1 sweet onion, chopped vertically
1 can of diced tomatoes (I used the no salt added kind)
3 cloves of garlic, minced
1/4 cup fresh basil, chopped
1/2 box of penne pasta
Cook pasta according to directions. Drain and return to the pot.
While the pasta is cooking, heat about 1 tablespoon of olive oil in a nonstick skillet. Add sausage, green pepper, onion, garlic, and basil to the skillet and saute until the vegetables are tender. Add tomatoes and juices from the can. Heat for another 2 minutes. Mix the sausage mixture with the pasta in the pot. Serve and enjoy!
