I created this tasty and easy dish for my husband and kids using two things they love--sausage and peppers, but made it a bit more healthy using chicken sausage instead of pork.

  1. Heat large skillet and add olive oil. Add sausage and brown on all sides. Remove sausage to cutting board.
  2. Add onion to pan and cook about 3 minutes. Add garlic and cook another 2 minutes. Then add peppers, Italian seasoning and salt and pepper. Cook until crisp tender.
  3. While pepper mixture is cooking. Cut sausage into bite sized pieces. Then add back to skillet when peppers are just about done.
  4. Add tomatoes and wine and let come to boil. Turn down to simmer for 5 minutes, uncovered. Stir in cooked and drained pasta.
  5. Sprinkle with cheese and serve.

Another one I forgot to rate - make this a while back and it is time to make again. Made exactly as posted here and we loved it. Very easy to prepare and along with a nice salad, this is good enough for company fare. I am moving to my "Tried & True" folder. Thanks for posting.
