Last NIght’s Dinner


  • 12 ounces fresh sweet or hot Italian pork sausages, removed from casing
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

  • 1 medium onion, thinly sliced
  • 2 teaspoons minced garlic
  • 1 can (28 oz) crushed tomatoes with basil
  • ½ teaspoon each salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 1 lb. penne pasta , or other pasta


1. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a rapid boil.

2. Meanwhile cook sausage in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat 5 minutes or until browned, breaking up chunks with a wooden spoon. Remove to a plate.

3. Add oil, peppers and onion to skillet. Cook, stirring occasionally, 5 minutes or until lightly browned. Push vegetables aside, add garlic and sauté 1 minute until fragrant. Stir in sausage, tomatoes, salt and pepper. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, cover and simmer 10 minutes to blend flavors.

4. Meanwhile stir pasta into boiling water and cook as package directs.

5. Drain pasta, transfer to a large serving bowl, add sauce and toss to mix and coat.
