Cheesy Sausage Pasta

Lynn demonstrates how to make a delicious Cheesy Sausage Pasta, perfect for dinner with crusty bread and a salad.


  • 1 (16 ounce) package uncooked pasta shells
  • 1 Tablespoon olive oil
  • ½ Tablespoon finely minced onion
  • 1 orange bell pepper, thinly sliced
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1 pound Italian sausage
  • 1 (14.5 ounce) can stewed tomatoes
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 Tablespoon chopped fresh parsley

Cook pasta according to package directions.  Drain well.

While the pasta is cooking, heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat.  Cook onion, orange pepper, and garlic in oil until tender, about 5 minutes.  Stir the crumbled Italian sausage into the vegetables in the skillet; cook and stir until meat is browned and cooked through, about 8 minutes.  Stir in the undrained tomatoes and the heavy cream.  Turn the heat to medium-low, and allow the sauce to cook until thick, about 5 additional minutes.

Mix pasta with the sausage cream sauce, stir in the Parmesan cheese.  Garnish with chopped fresh parsley.
