Pasta Italiano

  • 8 ounces spaghetti or linguini
  • 1/2 pound sweet Italian sausages
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil (optional)
  • 1/2 cup onions coarsely chopped
  • 1/2 cup green bell peppers chopped
  • 1 15-ounce jar marinara sauce
  • 1 4-ounce can mushrooms sliced, drained (optional)
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • Parmesan cheese grated

Cook spaghetti or linguini according to package directions; drain, return to pot, cover and keep warm if necessary.

Meanwhile, in a 10-inch skillet over medium heat, brown sausage, breaking up meat as it cooks. Transfer sausage to paper towels to drain; set aside. Remove all but 1 tablespoon of the drippings.

In drippings or oil, sauté onion and green pepper for about 7 minutes or until softened. Add sauce, sausage, mushrooms and sugar. Reduce heat to low, cover and simmer for 5 to 10 minutes to blend flavors.

Place drained pasta in a serving bowl. Pour sauce over; toss if desired. Serve with Parmesan cheese.
