Skillet Sausage Pasta

I have made this before and we really like it. I used link sausage since that's what we had on hand and it works great.


Skillet Sausage Pasta

2 cups uncooked pasta
4 Tbsp olive oil
1 1/2 pounds fresh white mushrooms, sliced
1 medium chopped onion
1 large green bell pepper, chopped
12 ounces pork or turkey Italian sausage
Salt and pepper to taste
1 14.5 ounce can diced tomatoes(un-drained)
1 1/2 cups tomato sauce
1 1/2 cups cheddar cheese, shredded

Cook elbow macaroni according to package; drain and set aside. In a large skillet heat oil over medium-high heat until hot. Add mushrooms, onion and green bell pepper. Cook and stir until onions and mushrooms are nicely browned, about 10 minutes. Remove from skillet. Crumble sausage and add to the pan. Cook, stirring until sausage is browned, about 5 minutes. Drain fat. Return mushroom mixture to skillet. Stir in tomatoes and their juice, tomato sauce and cooked macaroni. Bring to a boil; reduce heat to medium low. Simmer 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Sprinkle with Cheddar cheese. Cover and simmer until cheese melts, about 5 minutes.
