1 lb. (or to taste) sweet Italian sausage links, casings removed and sliced crosswise into 1 inch chunks
2 cloves garlic, crushed
1 large green bell pepper, seeded and cut into thin slices
1 large red bell pepper, seeded and cut into thin slices
1/2 of 1 onion, cut into thin slices
1 28 oz. can whole tomatoes, undrained
1 15 oz. can diced or crushed tomatoes, undrained
1 tsp. salt
8 oz. (dry) ziti pasta
4 oz. mozzarella cheese, cubed
1/4 c. fresh parmesan cheese

In a deep nonstick skillet cook sausage over medium-high heat for 5 minutes, or until browned on all sides. Drain all but 1 T. fat. Reduce heat to medium and add the crushed garlic, bell peppers, and onion. Cover skillet and let cook for 10 minutes, or until vegetables are tender, stirring occasionally. Add undrained whole and crushed tomatoes and salt. Heat to boiling over medium heat, breaking up whole tomatoes with the side of a spoon. Once boiling, reduce heat to low and let simmer 10 minutes. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Prepare ziti pasta according to package directions. Drain pasta and return to cooking pot. Pour in the tomato sauce mixture and cubed mozzarella cheese. Toss to combine. Transfer pasta to a 9x9 glass or ceramic dish. Sprinkle with parmesan cheese. Bake uncovered for 20 to 25 minutes until top browns slightly and sauce bubbles. Let stand 5 minutes before serving.
