Thursday Night Dinner - Sausage and Pepper Pasta

Sausage and Pepper Pasta

1 lb hot (or mild) Italian turkey sausage
1 Tablespoon vegetable oil
4 red or yellow sweet peppers (or a combination)
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 - 14 oz can diced tomatoes
1/2 cup tomato juice
1/4 cup water
1 tsp dried basil
salt and pepper to taste
1/4 cup sour cream

Cut sausage into bite-sized pieces and brown in hot skillet with vegetable oil. Seed peppers and cut into strips. Add to skillet and continue to cook, stirring frequently for about 5 minutes. Add garlic. Sauté 1-2 minutes longer. Add diced tomatoes, tomato juice, water and seasonings. Simmer over low heat until peppers are tender-crisp and sausage is cooked. Add sour cream just before serving.

Serve over corkscrew pasta, or your favourite shape. I like to use whole-wheat pasta.
Fast, easy and delicious.
