Prep Time: 15 minutes Cook Time: 20 minutes Serves 5
1 pound penne pasta
1 pound Italian sausage
1 large red bell pepper
1 large green bell pepper
1 small onion
½ tablespoon olive oil
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 (24 ounce) jar Arrabbiata Sauce
1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper
1 tablespoon Italian seasoning
4 ounces feta cheese
salt and black pepper to taste
Slice peppers and onions into long thin pieces. Set aside.
In a large skillet over medium-high heat, brown sausage links on all sides. Continue to cook until sausage is thoroughly cooked all the way through.
Once fully cooked, remove sausage from pan, cool slightly and slice. In the same pan the sausage was cooked, add the olive oil, peppers and onions and sauté for 5 minutes. Add minced garlic and sauté for 1-2 minutes more.
While veggies are cooking bring a pot of salted water to a boil. Add pasta and cook according to package directions.
After veggies have cooked, add the sliced sausage back to the pan along with the sauce, crushed red pepper, and Italian seasoning. Season to taste with salt and black pepper. Cook until sauce is heated through.
Pour sauce mixture over prepared, drained pasta. Serve topped with feta cheese.
