Kielbasa Skillet with Rotini

I tried this a few weeks ago and it was so good. I'll make it again for sure. Although, it was more for an adult pallet. Not kids.

2 C. dried rotini or rotelle pasta (about 6 oz.)
1 T. olive oil
1 med. onion, cut into wedges
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 lb. cooked kielbasa, halved lengthwise and sliced diagonally
1 small zucchini, cut into matchstick-size strips (I used a yellow one, for color)
1 yellow or orange sweet pepper, cut into small strips (I used an orange one for variety of color)
1 tsp. italian seasoning
1/8 tsp. ground red pepper
8 roma tomatoes, cored and chopped (about 1 lb)

Cook pasta according to package directions; drain. Meanwhile, in a very large skillet heat oil over medium heat. Add onion and garlic and cook 1 minute. Add kielbasa; cook until onion is tender, stirring frequently.

Add zucchini, sweet pepper, Italian seasoning, and ground red pepper; cook and stir for 5 minutes. Stir in tomatoes and cooked pasta. Heat through, stirring occasionally.

*This was so easy, and it was so good and flavorful!
