1/2 lb. whole wheat penne pasta
1 lb. turkey Italian sausage links
2 bell peppers, yellow, orange, or red, seeded and sliced
5 roma tomatoes, diced
1 yellow onion, thinly sliced
2 tsp. minced garlic
1 Tbsp. olive oil
1/4 c. fresh basil

Cook pasta to al dente according to package directions. Drain, rinse, and set aside.
Meanwhile, cook sausage links in a large skillet over medium-high heat for about 15 minutes, turning occasionally. Remove from pan and slice.
In the same pan, add olive oil and minced garlic. Saute for 1-2 minutes and then add the onion and peppers. Saute onion and peppers about 5 minutes or until just starting to soften. Add tomatoes and continue to cook until tomatoes are soft and saucy, about 10 minutes. Toss sausage and pasta in with tomatoes and peppers. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Serve topped with fresh basil and shredded cheese.
