EWD- Italian Sausage Toss

Happy Saturday!

3rd installment of Easy Weeknight Dinners. =)


Italian Sausage Toss

3-4 Italian sausage links ground Italian sausage - I use the ground
1 med. onion- chopped
1 green bell pepper- diced
1 small can mushrooms- drained
1 can diced tomatoes- drained
1 (16 ounce) package penne pasta
1/2 cup Italian salad dressing
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese for topping

1- Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add penne pasta, and cook until tender, about 10 minutes. Drain.

2- Place the Italian sausage links/ground sausage in a small skillet over medium heat. Cook, turning occasionally until firm and cooked through.

3- In a separate larger skillet, combine the green bell pepper, onion, mushrooms, and Italian dressing. Cook and stir until the vegetables are tender, about 5 minutes. Slice the Italian sausages into rounds, and stir into the vegetables. Continue to cook and stir for another 5 minutes.

4- Toss in the cooked pasta. Add more dressing if desired.

5- Sprinkle liberally with Parmesan cheese.

My picture does not do this dish justice. It's extremely scrumptious. Promise.
