Sausage Pasta Skillet


My Rating: 2/5 stars

My Review: We ran out of penne noodles so you can see we mixed in some rotini ones. This sauce was plain. It could have used tons more flavor. It really just tasted like sausages mixed with smooshed bell peppers.

Ingredients Needed:

  • 1 packages Italian sausage, 5 or 6 sausages total
  • 1 lb (450g) penne pasta
  • 1 red bell pepper, sliced
  • 1 small red onion, sliced
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • Salt and fresh cracked pepper to taste
  • 4 large ripe tomatoes, diced
  • 2 tablespoons crushed tomato
  • 1/2 cup (125ml) vegetable or chicken broth
  • 1/2 teaspoon crushed chili pepper
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 2 teaspoons fennel seeds, crushed in a mortar
  • 1 scallion, sliced, for garnish
  • Fresh chopped basil, for garnish
