Low Carb Penne With Italian Sausage

Another really good pasta dish. I like to use hot Italian sausage for this recipe, the heat takes it to another level! If you don't have the spicy variety just add about 1/4 teaspoon of crushed red pepper flakes.

  • 1 lb of hot Italian Sausage
  • 1/2 of a large green pepper chopped
  • 2 large tomatoes diced
  • 1/2 cup diced onion (any variety)
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 box of Dreamfields Penne or homemade pasta
  • 1 teaspoon Italian spices (pick your favorite)
  • 1/4 cup fresh grated parmesan

Cook sausage, green pepper and onion until sausage is fully cooked. Drain some of the fat and add the olive oil, tomatoes and spices, saute until the water from the tomatoes reduce slightly. Cook pasta according to package directions, drain and toss with the sauce and parmesan. If you prefer you can skip the diced tomatoes and us a low carb pasta sauce, it will be a little richer. This one is sure to please!
