How about Italian for dinner tonight? This one-dish meal of ziti, spicy sausage and Muir Glen® fire roasted tomatoes can be on the table in short order.

Ingredients

2
cups uncooked ziti pasta (7 oz)
2
cups bite-size fresh broccoli florets
1
package (19.5 oz) lean hot Italian turkey sausage, cut into 2-inch pieces
1
tablespoon olive oil
1
large red bell pepper, cut into bite-size strips
1
large yellow bell pepper, cut into bite-size strips
1
medium sweet onion, sliced (about 1 cup)
2
cans (14.5 oz each) Muir Glen™ organic fire roasted crushed or diced tomatoes, undrained
1
cup shredded provolone cheese (4 oz)

Directions

  • 1 Cook pasta as directed on package, adding broccoli last 2 minutes of cooking time. Drain and return to saucepan; cover to keep warm.
  • 2 Meanwhile, in 12-inch nonstick skillet, cook sausage over medium-high heat 8 to 10 minutes or until no longer pink. Drain; remove sausage from skillet.
  • 3 In same skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Cook bell peppers and onion in oil 3 to 4 minutes, stirring constantly, until vegetables are crisp-tender.
  • 4 Add pasta and broccoli, sausage and tomatoes to skillet. Heat to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer uncovered 4 to 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Sprinkle with cheese. Cover; cook 1 to 2 minutes or until cheese is melted.

Expert Tips

Cook the pasta while the sausage, bell peppers and onion are cooking. Also, cooking the broccoli in the same pot as the pasta is a nice step-saver.
