Penne pasta is tossed with colorful peppers, zesty sausage and a seasoned tomato sauce — now that’s Italian!



8 oz. penne, uncooked
1 lb. hot Italian turkey sausage (about 4 links)
1 each med. green, red and yellow bell pepper, cut into 1/4-inch strips
1/2 cup onion, coarsely chopped
2 cloves garlic, pressed
14.5-oz can diced tomatoes in sauce, undrained
8-oz can tomato sauce

Cook pasta according to package directions in Professional (4 qt.) Casserole; drain and keep warm.

Meanwhile, cook sausage in Family (12-in.) Skillet over medium-high heat 14-16 minutes or until sausage is lightly browned and no longer pink, turning occasionally. Remove sausages from skillet; cut diagonally into 1-inch pieces and set aside. Cut bell peppers into 1/4-inch strips using Chef’s Knife. Coarsely chop onion using Food Chopper.

In same skillet, cook bell peppers, onion and garlic pressed with Garlic Press over medium heat 6-8 minutes or until peppers are crisp-tender, stirring occasionally. Add sausage, tomatoes, tomato sauce and seasoning mix. Cook and stir 1-2 minutes or until heated through.

Place pasta in large bowl; pour sauce mixture over pasta, tossing to coat. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese. Serve immediately.
