Pasta with Sausage and Peppers Recipe

Pasta with Sausage and Peppers

Prep Time 5min Cook Time 15min

This lighter take on sausage and peppers is a great weeknight meal that takes very little time to prepare. The tri-color peppers add color and flavor, but if only green are available, that works well, too. Serve with a bagged green salad for a quick dinner.
