Sausage and Peppers Over Pasta

This one pot dinner (well, two I guess because of cooking the pasta) is absolutely delicious. That is, assuming you love Italian staples like sausage, green peppers, garlic, onions, and of course spaghetti. I came up with the idea this morning, knowing Kevin had mentioned sausage as a desired main dish for the week.

Ingredients (for 2)
2 sausage links, sliced
1 green pepper, sliced
1/4 large onion, sliced
2-3 garlic cloves, minced
pasta sauce, homemade or store-bought (I like Prego. Or Meijer brand.)
Spaghetti (desired amount)

Heat a large skillet to medium heat. Add 2 Tbsp oil. Saute onions, peppers, and garlic until soft and fragrant. Push the vegetables to the side of the pan. Add sausage slices and let them brown on each side. Stir skillet contents together, being sure to scrape up the browned bits of sausage to add flavor. Pour in 1-2 cups pasta sauce. Heat through.

Meanwhile, cook pasta. Drain and stir into sauce. Serve and enjoy!
