Yummy Nummy Pasta Dish

My journey with Weight Watchers has been full of some ups and downs, but I notice this time around I don't beat myself up over the downs. I just get motivated to hop right back into place. I have been trying so many new recipes lately and there are some that are fabulous and some that are not so much. This is so far the families all time favorite.

Italian Sausage and pepper pasta
Serves 5 (serving sized 1 1/2 cup)

What you Need:
2 cups uncooked penne pasta
1 lbs turkey italian sausage link
1/2 cup julienned sweet red, yellow and green pepper
1 Tablespoon dried basil
3 garlic cloves, minced
1/4 teaspoon dried oregano
1/4 teaspoon dried thyme
1/4 teaspoon caraway seeds
1 Tablespoon olive oil
2 cans (14 1/2 oz) diced tomatoes, drained

Cook Pasta. In large nonstick skillet, brown sausage over medium heat,drain. Cut sausage into 1/4in. slices. In the same skillet saute peppers, basil, garlic, oregano, thyme, caraway seeds and sliced sausage in oil until peppers are crisp-tender. Stir in tomatoes. Cook and stir until heated through. Drain pasta;add to skillet and mix well.
