Comfort Food at its Finest

I'm all about one-pot meals with very few ingredients. I guess if I'm honest, this is a two pot meal since you have to cook the pasta first, but you get the picture. I came up with this idea the day after we had Italian sausage sandwiches for dinner and I didn't have any rolls left... and I think I like this better! The whole meal takes about 20 minutes to cook.

Here's what you need:
  • 1 package of Italian sausage, 5 links (hot, sweet or mild)
  • 1 can diced tomatoes in basil and oregano
  • 1 green pepper, cut into strips
  • lots of mozzarella cheese : )
  • 1/2 pound of pasta
Add a little water to a skillet to steam the sausage. As it is steaming, turn the water on to boil and cook pasta according to instructions. Add the green pepper strips to the skillet with the sausage and saute. When the sausage is almost finished cooking, add the whole can of tomatoes and let the liquid reduce. Drain the pasta and return it to the pot. Add tomatoes, peppers and sausage to the pasta and toss. Sprinkle liberally with cheese and enjoy!
