Recipe source: Simple & Delicious, June/July 2010

Ah, Italian. I love it.

This was very good. BP and I both enjoyed this one. It’s easy to throw together, and you can use fresh vegetables from your garden.


sausage & penne marinara


2-1/2 c. uncooked penne pasta (I used a whole regular size box.)

1 lb. Italian sausage links, cut into 1-in. pieces (I used bulk sausage instead of links.)

1 lg. onion, halved and sliced

1 medium green pepper, sliced

1 tbsp. canola oil (I used olive oil.)

1 can (14.5 oz.) stewed tomatoes, cut up

1 can (8 oz.) tomato sauce

1 tsp. garlic powder

1 tsp. dried basil

1 tsp. dried oregano

1/2 tsp. salt

1/2 tsp. pepper

1/4 tsp. red pepper flakes

grated Parmesan cheese

Cook pasta according to directions. Meanwhile, in a large skillet, cook the sausage, onion and green pepper in oil over medium heat until the sausage is no longer pink and vegetables are tender. Add tomatoes, tomato sauce and seasonings; heat through.

Drain pasta; toss with tomato mixture. Sprinkle with cheese.
