Tomato Penne Pasta
salt and pepper
1 lb. whole wheat penne pasta
Half of a white onion
Red and yellow bell peppers
1/4 cup olive oil
3 garlic cloves thinly sliced
2/3 pound cherry tomatoes (2 cups) halved or quartered
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper (optional)
1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
non-fat feta cheese
[The ingredients I added are the ones that don't have measurements!]
1. In a large pot of boiling salted water cook the penne according to package directions until al dente, about 13 minutes.
2. Meanwhile, in a large skillet, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the garlic and onion and cook, stirring, until just golden, about 1 minute. Add the cherry tomatoes, bell peppers, oregano, crushed red pepper, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Reduce the heat to low and cook, stirring, until tomato juices run, about 3 minutes.
3. In a separate skillet, cook the turkey sausage.
4. Add the penne, parsley, feta, and sausage to the skillet (or bowl) and toss to combine.
