Pasta with Sausage

I tasted this dish several years ago at a department store demo.  I've changed it up to suit our tastes.  Whenever I need a quick, easy meal, I make this.  You can use penne or rotini pasta in this dish.  I hope you enjoy it!

8 ounces Italian sausage, casing removed (I use 2 links of chicken sausage)
1 cup chopped onion
1 bell pepper, chopped
8 ounces fresh mushrooms, sliced
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 15 ounce can diced tomatoes, with juice
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1 teaspoon dried basil
3 cups of penne or rotini pasta, cooked
Parmesan cheese, for garnish

Cook sausage over medium heat in a deep skillet, stirring to break up sausage & until it is no longer pink.  Drain & then add onion, bell pepper, mushrooms & garlic & cook for 3-4 minutes.  Add tomatoes, oregano & basil and salt & pepper to taste.  Simmer for 5 minutes.  Add cooked pasta and cook 2-3 minutes until pasta is heated through.  Add freshly grated parmesan for garnish.  Delcious!!
