total time:


  • 2-1/2 cups uncooked penne pasta
  • 1 pound Italian sausage links, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1 large onion, halved and sliced
  • 1 medium green pepper, sliced
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 can (14-1/2 ounces) stewed tomatoes, cut up

  1. Begin by cooking the pasta by adding water to a 3 quart saucepan. Bring the water to a boil, add 2 tsp salt, and add the pasta. Stir occasionally for the next 10 minutes.
  2. While the pasta is cooking, place a high-wall stainless steel pan on medium. Cook the sausage to the browned stage, along with the onions and green peppers until the sausage is completely cooked. Add the tomatoes and sauce. Adjust the seasons with your spices.
  3. Once the pasta is cooked, drain and place in a colander. To serve, add the penne to a pasta dish, and top with your sausage sauce. Sprinkle or shave some parmesan for added flavor.
