Winner. Winner. I have your Sunday dinner.
No, seriously, I have your dinner all planned. Most likely you have all the ingredients too and if not, well, then high-step yourself to the market.
I love pasta! I love everything about it. The heartiness, how it soaks up all the flavors that are fused in the pot, how its BFF for life is cheese and they are unstoppable, how cozy and warm I feel when it sits there looking all gorgeous at me.
You are gorgeous!
There is absolutely zero Italian bloodline running through my veins but I adore Italian food. I think if I ever made my way to Italy, I would eat my way through every town, spending a ridiculous amount of money on food. But, hey, that’s just me.
This dish is so delectable, and incredibly easy. Everything about it screams, “Get in my Belly now!”
- 1 lb of Ground Sage Sausage
- 1/2 of a Red Bell Pepper (diced)
- 1/2 of a Yellow Pepper (diced)
- 1/2 of a Orange Pepper (diced)
- 1/2 of a Yellow Onion (diced)
- 2 Cloves of Garlic (minced)
- 2 Cups of Penne Pasta

- 1 Cup of Water
- 1/3 Cup of Half & Half
- 1/2 Cup of Shredded Mozzarella Cheese
- Salt & Pepper, to taste
- Dried Basil, to taste
In a large skillet cook sausage on medium heat, until meat is brown. Drain off fat. Add diced bell peppers and onion to skillet. Cook for about two to three minutes, then add the minced garlic. Stir to combine all ingredients and add salt and pepper, to taste. Add the jar of pasta sauce and stir. Once combined, add 1 cup on water and combine. Add dried penne pasta and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer covered for 20 minutes. Once the pasta is tender, add the half and half and cheese. Plate and sprinkle dried basil, to taste.
