Cook pasta according to package directions; drain and set aside.
Cook sausage in a Dutch oven over medium-high heat, stirring until sausage crumbles and is no longer pink; drain.
Sauté onion and bell peppers in hot oil in Dutch oven over medium-high heat 6 minutes. Add garlic, and sauté 2 minutes. Stir in sausage, cooked pasta, chicken broth, crushed red pepper, and black pepper. Reduce heat to low, and cook, stirring occasionally, 5 minutes or until thoroughly heated. Transfer to a serving dish, and top evenly with basil and cheese. Serve immediately.
I LOVE this recipe. I tried it for the first time with my Mom about 5 years ago, and we both have been making it for our families ever since. I use whole wheat pasta and up the chicken broth a little to make it a tad more moist. I also up the fresh basil as well - simply because I love fresh basil. Overall, a fantastic weeknight meal.
