Sausage and Pepper Penne

Chelsey Carr

"This recipe is the best when made using farmer's sausage, but any sausage links will do. Add the red pepper flakes at the end for a little kick, or leave them out if spice isn't for you."

  1. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil; add penne and cook, stirring occasionally, until tender yet firm to the bite, about 11 minutes.
  2. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat, and cook and stir sausage, onion, green bell pepper, red bell pepper, orange bell pepper, and mushrooms until vegetables are tender, about 10 minutes.
  3. Stir diced tomatoes, tomato sauce, minced garlic, garlic powder, oregano, basil, salt, black pepper, and red pepper flakes into vegetable mixture; bring to a simmer and cook, stirring occasionally, about 10 minutes.
  4. Drain pasta and spoon onto plates and top with sauce mixture.

Fresh and tasty! I used chicken sausage to cut down on the fat and it was still flavorful. It made a big pot so we are looking forward to leftovers.
