8 oz dry penne pasta
2 t olive oil
1/2 C onion, finely chopped
1 clove garlic, chopped
4 small sweet peppers, sliced
2 1/2 C Roma tomatoes, seeded and chopped
1/4 cup chopped fresh basil or 4 t dried basil

Prep. Time → 20 min

Cook Time → 30 min

1. Cook sausage according to package directions. Allow to cool for at least 5 minutes. Slice into 1/4" thick pieces. Set aside.

2. Cook pasta according to package directions until it is al dente, about 8 to 10 minutes. Drain and set aside. Add a little olive oil if necessary to prevent sticking.

3. In a large skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Saute the onions, garlic and peppers. Stir in the tomatoes, chicken sausage, basil, salt, hot pepper sauce or flakes and chicken broth. Reduce heat to medium, and cover skillet. Simmer for about 5 minutes, stirring frequently, until mixture is hot and tomatoes are soft.

4. Mix cornstarch and water with a whisk or fork, add to sauce mixture and mix. Reduce heat slightly and cook uncovered until sauce thickens to desired consistency.

5. Toss sauce with hot cooked pasta to coat. Serve with Parmesan cheese.

This recipe is my first Recipefy submission. I hope you enjoy it.
It works particularly well with home-grown tomatoes and basil during the summer months. Of course, you can use canned diced tomatoes in a pinch, but fresh ingredients make all the difference in this dish.
You can make this dish in advance, dump it into a glass 9 x 13" Pyrex pan, cool, cover and refrigerate overnight. To reheat, uncover and re-cover the pan with foil and place in a 325°F pre-heated oven for about 20 minutes.
