Recipe by Little Grandma
I got the idea for this recipe from a can of S&W Ready-Cut Diced Tomatoes with Onion and Bell Pepper. The recipe calls for crumbled sausage but my husband and I like our sausage sliced over pasta. It also calls for the pasta to be cooked in the skillet but I cook mine separately and added it to the sauce just before serving. Turned out delicious
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 4 Italian sausages
- 1⁄4-1⁄2 cup water
- 1 cup of chopped onion
- 4 cloves of minced garlic

- 2 (14 1/2 ounce) cansof s&w ready-cut diced tomatoes with green pepper and onion
- 1 tablespoon dried oregano
- 8 ounces cooked penne pasta
- 1⁄4 cup grated romano cheese
