Lean & Mean Pasta Skillet

serves 4

Cooking Time: 20 min

What You'll Need:
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 pound turkey sausage, casing removed
1 yellow bell pepper, diced
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 (28-ounce) can diced tomatoes, not drained
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1 pound whole grain angel hair pasta
2 tablespoon chopped fresh basil

What To Do:
1. In a large skillet, heat oil over medium heat; cook sausage, bell pepper, and garlic 5 to 7 minutes, or until meat is browned, breaking up meat as it cooks. Stir in tomatoes, salt, and pepper, and simmer 10 to 15 minutes.

2. Meanwhile, cook pasta according to package directions. Drain and transfer to a large bowl. Stir the basil into the sauce and serve over the pasta.

Our Bean Trio salad is a tasty and healthy complement to this dish.

Who doesn't like a sprinkle of Parmesan cheese over most any pasta dish?! And if you like your sausage a little spicier, feel free to use hot turkey sausage.
