Servings: 4–6 servings
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1 (14-ounce) package beef smoked sausage, halved lengthwise and sliced 1⁄2 inch thick
1 red bell pepper, chopped
1 green bell pepper, chopped
1 yellow bell pepper, chopped
1 sweet onion, chopped
2 teaspoons minced garlic
1 (28-ounce) can crushed tomatoes
1 teaspoon Creole seasoning
1⁄2 teaspoon crushed red pepper
1⁄4 teaspoon salt
1 (16-ounce) package penne pasta, cooked according to package directions and kept warm
Garnish: chopped fresh parsley
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.
