Speedy mushroom and sausage sauce for pasta

8 oz. bowtie or pasta of your choice, uncooked
1 lb sweet Italian sausage links cut in 1 in. pieces
8 oz. sliced white or brown mushrooms (approx. 2 1/2 - 3 cups)
1 cup each chopped green bell pepper and chopped onion
2 cups prepared marinara sauce
Grated Parmesan cheese

Cook pasta per package directions.  Meanwhile in a large skillet cook sausage until browned and cooked through, about 10 min.  Remove, set aside.  Drain off all but 1 T. fat; heat until hot.  Add mushrooms, green pepper and onion, cook stirring occasionally, about 5-7 min.  Add reserved sausage and marinara sauce, cook until heated through, about 5 min.  Ladle sauce over hot pasta; sprinkle with grated cheese.  serves 4.

phew!  now I can throw away the backs of the mushroom packages.  I really liked this recipe, and so did the kids.
