Sausage, Peppers & Penne in a light Parmesan Sauce

1

This meal is healthy-ish (yes there is butter in it), budget friendly, filling, and even carries some nutritional value...oh and even better- its easy! Great dish for a college student learning how to cook and a busy family living on a military budget.

4
1 box of whole wheat penne pasta

1 pound of turkey sausage (in the casing)

1 cup frozen chopped bell peppers (I buy the variety pack which includes red, green, and yellow- this makes for a colorful dish too!)

1/2 Cup Yellow Onion

2 cloves minced garlic

1 Tbs butter

1 Tbs Flour

1 cup Milk

1/4 Cup Grated Parmesan cheese

Salt and Pepper to Taste

Parsley for finish/ garnish
Process: Cook pasta until al dente. Set aside. While pasta is cooking, begin to heat olive oil in saute pan over medium heat. When oil is hot add sausage and brown until cooked through. Take sausage out...
