Chicken Sausage Cacciatore
25 Min

This version of Chicken Sausage Cacciatore may be lighter than traditional chicken cacciatore, but it's still heavy on taste. Chunks of sauteed chicken sausage swimming in our garlicky tomato-veggie sauce make for a hearty main-dish meal.

What You'll Need

  • 1 pound penne pasta
  • 4 tablespoons olive oil, divided
  • 1 pound chicken sausage, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1 teaspoon chopped fresh garlic
  • 1 large green bell pepper, cut into 1/2-inch chunks
  • 1/2 onion, chopped (about 1 cup)
  • 1/2 pound fresh mushrooms, cut into quarters
  • 10 plum tomatoes, cut into 1-inch chunks
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper

What to Do

  1. Cook pasta according to package directions; drain and set aside.
  2. Meanwhile, in a large skillet, heat 2 tablespoons oil over medium-high heat then add sausage, and cook 8 to 10 minutes, or until no longer pink in center. Remove to a bowl and cover with plastic wrap.
  3. Add remaining 2 tablespoons oil to skillet. Add garlic, bell pepper, and onion, and cook 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Stir in mushrooms, tomatoes, salt, and black pepper, and cook 7 to 10 more minutes, or until tomatoes have broken down.
  4. Return sausage to skillet and cook 2 to 3 minutes, or until heated through. Serve over warm penne pasta.

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

Some may think nutritional values aren't important, but for someone like me that's a diabetic, I need this in order to bolus insulin for my meals. It's very important to me.

msolie, if you like the reicpes here and since values aren't provided, could I suggest you google to get a nutrition calculator and add the ingredients into a recipe there to check them before making them. they are fairly easy to use and they do the calculations for you. I assume spark people has one as well as livestrong and nutrimirror to name a few. I personally use the later one. Good luck and hopes that helps.

Mr Food website has a diabetic recipe section you may wish to visit. Nutritional values are already included. I suspect that these recipes with the added sugar and fast carbs are not going to be very good for you. I wouldn't chance it if I were you.

Good and tasty recipe

I would also like to see the nutrition values on your recipes please.

Nutritional values? you can create your own recipe website and put nutritional values in there ...this is Mr Food's recipe site.. where we have fun EASY AND TASTY RECIPES NO NEED FOR NUTRITIONAL VALUES HERE

What are the nutritian values on your receipes?? Please add them.

Wen we share our recipes with friends & family there are no "Nutritional Values " attached MR Food is the same way a fun easy going recipe site. IF you want breakdowns of recipes there are many other recipe sites you can go to . I hope Mr Food never, ever gives in to BULLIES who try to push their agenda and their "Preferences " on others MR Food . Please stay just as you are.. We LOVE YOU

Grannyblu - I agree with you - I see the same names over and over petitioning for the nutritional values when there are hundreds of sites directly targeted for diet-sensitive individuals. If these people can operate a computer to comment on this website, they certainly have the ability to deconstruct these recipes and alter them themselves to meet their needs.

Outstanding. I can hardly wait to cook this one up.
