Quick-as-a-Wink Pasta


1 pound Italian-style turkey sausage, casing removed
1 onion, chopped
1 green bell pepper, chopped
3 garlic cloves, minced
2 (14-1/2-ounce) cans diced tomatoes with basil and oregano, undrained
8 ounces mushrooms, sliced
1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1 pound rotini, twists, or spiral pasta
1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese


In a large skillet over medium-high heat, cook the sausage, onion, bell pepper, and garlic until no pink remains in the sausage. Reduce heat to low and add tomatoes, mushrooms, Italian seasoning, salt, and pepper; simmer 10 minutes, or until thoroughly heated.

Meanwhile, prepare pasta according to package directions; drain, rinse, and drain again. Place pasta on a large serving platter.

Spoon sausage mixture over pasta and top with mozzarella cheese. Serve immediately.
