Throw together Pasta dinner


 We have been on vacation for 2 weeks and I had some italian sausage left over that I needed to use up so I threw this together. It was a huge hit. It is just as good without the cheese sauce.

Olive oil
1lb Italian sausage, sliced
½ lb asparagus cut in thirds
½ pound baby Bella mushrooms, or button, sliced
1 green bell pepper, sliced thin
1 red bell pepper, sliced thin
1 red onion, sliced thin
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 T Cajun seasoning.
1 lemon
Whole wheat penne pasta
Jar Ragu mozzarella cheese sauce.
Start pot of water to boil for pasta. When it comes to a boil add pasta and cook as directed on box.
Heat pan and drizzle with olive oil. Cook sausage until very little pink remains. Add onions and Cajun seasoning cook until soft, add garlic, vegetables and salt to taste. Cook until vegetables are tender but with still a little crisp to them. Squeeze in lemon juice add pasta and Ragu cheese sauce.
