Italian Sausage Delight

This recipe is great for nights when you feel like eating Italian but are tired of dishes with the typical red sauce. It's really easy to make and it's delicious too! I used mild sausage instead of hot. Makes 6 servings.


6 (3.5 ounce) links hot Italian sausage
1 large onion, chopped
1 red bell peppers, seeded and diced
1 green bell pepper, seeded and diced
1 (4 ounce) can mushrooms, drained
1 (16 ounce) package penne pasta
1/2 cup Italian salad dressing
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese for topping


Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add penne pasta, and cook until tender, about 10 minutes. Drain.
Place the Italian sausage links in a small skillet over medium heat. Cook, turning occasionally until firm and cooked through.
In a separate larger skillet, combine the red and green bell peppers, 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.
To serve, place servings of pasta onto plates. Top with the sausage and vegetable mixture. Sprinkle liberally with Parmesan cheese.
