This is a Weight Watchers recipe that we just love.  And, it is very easy to make.

  • 2 cups uncooked penne or other tube-shaped pasta
  • 6 oz 50%-less-fat pork sausage (such as Jimmy Dean)

  • ½ cup diced bottled roasted red bell peppers
  • ¾ teaspoon sugar
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt


  1. Cook pasta according to package directions, omitting salt and fat.   Drain well.
  2. While pasta cooks, cook sausage in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat 6-8 minutes or until brown; stir to crumble.  Drain.
