Italian Sausage and Zucchini Penne

This is one of our favorite meals! I'm not one to repeat meals very frequently(I get tired of food easy), but to say we eat this several times a month is a lot. I probably make it more frequently than anything else. It's easy, healthy, and we love it. You've got your lean protein(turkey sausage), whole grains, and vegetables all in one. And I LOVE one dish meals. Fewer dishes!

It looks similar to this(not my photo):

Italian “turkey” Sausage and Ziti Skillet Dinner

1/2 lb. Italian turkey sausage, casings removed

1 cup diced onion

1 cup diced bell peppers(I buy frozen bag of mixed peppers from Harris Teeter. Sooo much cheaper than fresh)

1 can Campbell's Healthy Request Tomato Soup

1 1/2 cans of water

2/3 of a box of whole grain pasta

2 medium zucchini, sliced

1 Tbsp dried basil

½ tsp pepper

¼ - ½ cup grated parmesan cheese

1. Cook sausage, onion, and peppers over med-high heat 8 min or until sausage is no longer pink and veggies are tender.

2. Stir in soup and water, bring to boil, stirring until smooth.

3. Stir in pasta and zucchini, cover, reduce heat and simmer 25 min or until pasta is cooked, stirring occasionally so pasta cooks evenly. Add more water if needed.

4. Remove from heat and stir in basil, pepper, and cheese.
