Sausage and Peppers

This is a quick easy pasta dish that is very versatile. It could easily be made vegetarian by omitting the sausage and adding more vegetables like zucchini or yellow squash, you could also use portabello instead of just white mushrooms. This time I made it with bulk Italian sausage but you could use a smoked sausage and just slice it up.
16 0z Italian Sausage
1 red bell pepper diced
1 small onion diced
1 8 oz container mushrooms sliced (you could use canned)
Diced squash or other veggies
Saute this until the sausage and peppers are really nice and browned.
Then add
3 cloves garlic minced
1 16 oz can diced tomatoes with juice
1 16 oz can tomato sauce
1 t dried oregano
1 t Italian seasoning
Salt and pepper to taste
I used a hot sausage but if you use mild you could add some red pepper flakes
Simmer until all veggies are soft.
