Sausage Pepper Pasta

This is a quick dinner for busy school nights.

 

Sausage Pepper Pasta

 
16 oz bulk sausage
2 peppers--any assortment of colors
1 small onion
1 jar spaghetti sauce
1 teaspoon Italian seasoning (optional)
16 oz whole wheat pasta
Parmesan cheese (optional)
 
 
Start by getting your water boiling for your pasta. I usually use penne pasta, but any shape will do.  Chop your peppers and onions into bite-size pieces.  Brown up the sausage.
 
Drain the grease and transfer the sausage to a plate covered with paper towels. Put the vegetables in the same pan and saute until tender.  (Covering the pan with a lid makes this step quicker.)



Add the spaghetti sauce and Italian seasoning and let simmer for about 5 minutes.

When the pasta is al dente, drain it and add to the sauce.


 
 Mix together and top with parmesan cheese.
