Italian Sausage Rigatoni

One word - YUM.   Also not bad on the wallet.   Fed 4 of us for dinner and gave us lunch leftovers the next day.

1 package of Italian Turkey Sausage (sweet or hot - I prefer sweet for the kids)
1 package of Rigatoni pasta
3 TBS olive oil
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 red pepper, finely chopped
1 jar of your favorite pasta sauce (we used Classico Tomato & Basil)
2 TBS parsley, chopped

Cook sausage according to directions.  Sometimes I grill them but usually I cook them on the stove with a little bit of low calorie Italian dressing.  Enhances the flavor even more!

After cooking, coin slice them and keep warm.

Cook pasta according to directions. Drain well.

 In a large pan, place olive oil and garlic, saute lightly for 2 minutes. Add the red peppers and cook until tender-crisp. Stir occasionally. 

Add the cooked sausage and pasta sauce to the pan with the peppers and stir well.  Saute for 3-4 minutes.  Then mix with the drained pasta in a large bowl. Top with parsley.
