  • 1 red bell pepper, chopped
  • 1 green bell pepper, chopped
  • 1 yellow bell pepper, chopped
  • 1 sweet onion, chopped

  • 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 (16 oz) package penne pasta, cooked according to package directions and kept warm
  • fresh parsley, chopped, for garnish


1. In a large skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add sausage, and cook, stirring frequently, for 6 minutes or until sausage is browned. Add peppers, onion and garlic; cook for 7 to 8 minutes or until vegetables are tender.

2. Stir in tomatoes, next 3 ingredients, and pasta, tossing gently to coat. Reduce heat to medium, and cook for 5 minutes or until heated through. Serve immediately. Garnish with parsley, if desired.

Note: Italian turkey sausage can be substituted for smoked sausage to lighten the dish.

It was "AMAZING"

It was "AMAZING", easy and quick to make. My entire family loved it. I had such a great time prepping my vegetables and sausage and finally seeing it all come together. Thank you Paula, it was delicious.
