Pasta with "Italian Sausage"

Submitted by: SINFULPEACH

Introduction

A yummy, filling, nutritious, simple pasta dish. A yummy, filling, nutritious, simple pasta dish.
Number of Servings: 2

Ingredients

    4 oz. whole wheat pasta of your choice (I like Penne)
    1 c. jarred marinara of your choice (keep it simple, though)
    2 tsp. olive oil
    1 link of Tofurky Italian Sausage
    1/3 c. chopped onion
    1/3 c. chopped green bell pepper

Directions

Makes 2 servings (can very easily be increased to feed more people)

Cook pasta according to package directions.

While pasta is cooking, add olive oil to large skillet and heat over medium to medium-high heat. Slice "sausage" link into 1/2 inch discs or ovals. Chop onion and green pepper to desired size.

When pan is warm, add sausage and vegetables. Cook until "sausage" is browned and onions are translucent. Then add marinara sauce. Simmer until heated through (basically, until your pasta is done).

Strain pasta, top with sauce. Voila!

Even though the pasta sauce is already seasoned, I like to add my own herbs, like basil and oregano, and some garlic powder. Also, this is even more delicious (and nutritious) if you sprinkle on a little nutritional yeast or vegan parmesan. Try Parma! which is a great, raw topping.

Number of Servings: 2

    Thank you so much for commenting! This is the first time I've ever posted a recipe to SparkRecipes, so I was really excited to see a comment! Maybe next time you make the dish, you'll consider going cruelty-free :D
