Makes: 4  servings Prep 15 mins Cook 16 mins


  • 8 ounces  whole-wheat fusilli
  • 2 teaspoons  extra-virgin olive oil
  • 6 ounces  hot Italian pork sausage, casings removed
  • 1 small Vidalia onion, diced
  • 2 cups  diced bell pepper

Stir in onion, bell pepper, Italian sea-soning, red pepper flakes and salt and cook, stirring often, until vegetables start to brown, 5 to 8 minutes.
