CHEESY SAUSAGE PASTA


Ingredients

  • 1 (16 ounce) package uncooked pasta shells

  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil

  • 1/2 tablespoon finely minced onion

  • 1 orange bell pepper, thinly sliced

  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic

  • 1 pound bulk Italian sausage

  • 1 (14.5 ounce) can stewed tomatoes

  • 1 cup heavy cream

  • 1 cup grated Parmesan cheese

  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley

Directions

  1. Fill a large pot with lightly salted water, and bring to a rolling boil over high heat. Stir in the shell pasta, and return to a boil. Cook, stirring occasionally, until cooked through but still firm to the bite, about 13 minutes. Drain well.

  2. While the pasta is cooking, heat the vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook onion, orange pepper, and garlic in oil until tender, about 5 minutes. Stir the crumbled Italian sausage into the vegetables in the skillet; cook and stir until meat is browned and cooked through, about 8 minutes. Stir in the undrained tomatoes and the heavy cream. Turn the heat to medium-low, and allow the sauce to cook until thick, about 5 additional minutes.

  3. Mix pasta with the sausage cream sauce, stir in the Parmesan cheese, and serve. Garnish with chopped fresh parsley.
