Tasty Thursday

I am praying that this is the last crazy busy week.  We had so much going on.  Daughter & Son had marching band Monday, & Thursday.  Daughter had driver's education.  Tonight is the last night of it, and she is worried about passing the test. Doctors appointments, church, choir, and that is just through today.

Friday is football.  Saturday, Daughter and I are getting our hairs cut.  Foxy is working on the truck, Son is helping with a haunted trail, and Daughter and BF have been invited to a costume birthday party.  Foxy and I have been invited to the neighbors for a party and the Band is having a Quarter Auction.  So I need to come up with some quick easy meals. Here is one of our favorites.  I got it out of the Taste of Home magazine several years ago.

Pasta with Peppers and Sausage


  • 12 ounces uncooked spaghetti
  • 1 package (14 ounces) smoked turkey sausage, cut into 1/4-inch slices
  • 2 medium green peppers, julienned
  • 2 medium sweet red peppers, julienned
  • 1 medium onion, halved and thinly sliced
  • 2 cans (14-1/2 ounces each) diced tomatoes, undrained
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 6 to 8 drops hot pepper sauce
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1/2 cup Progresso ® Chicken Broth


  • Cook spaghetti according to package directions. Meanwhile, in a Dutch oven coated with cooking spray, cook and stir sausage until lightly browned. Add peppers and onion; cook and stir 2 minutes longer. Stir in the tomatoes, garlic, pepper sauce, paprika, salt and cayenne; cook until vegetables are tender.
  • Combine cornstarch and broth until smooth; add to sausage mixture. Bring to a boil. Cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Drain spaghetti; toss with sausage mixture. Yield: 6-8 servings.
It really isn't hot or anything.  Just yummy!

I am excited and going to go to McDonald's this weekend because...the sign says "The McRib is back!"  I have no idea why, but that is my favorite item on their menu.  And they don't serve it often enough.

Well enjoy the pasta dish and have a great day!
