Recipe

Sausage and peppers is one of my favorite ball game of festival snacks but sometimes during the week I want something more than a simple sandwich. This simple recipe was inspired by those flavors but turned into a simple but very flavorful pasta dish made with turkey sausage, peppers, sweet onion, mushrooms, and fire roasted tomatoes. Use any type of pasta you like but I love shells in this recipe since they end up filled up with sausage and tomato goodness.
