Hearty Sausage Stew

I had a packaged smoked sausage in storage and just subbed it with some pepperoni for the meat in this stew. It was nice not to have to prepare any meat, but still put a yummy stew on the table!

Hearty Sausage Stew
1/2 lb. fresh kielbasa pr Polish sausage links, cut into 1/2 in slices
1/2 lb. Italian sausage links, cut into 1/2 inch slices
1 medium onion, chopped
1 medium green pepper, chopped
3-1/2 cups beef broth
1 can (14-1/2 oz) diced tomatoes, undrained
1 cup apple juice
1 T minced fresh parsley
1 garlic clove, minced
1/4 tsp. dried basil
1/4 tsp. dried oregano
4 oz. uncooked spiral pasta

In a large saucepan, cook sausages over medium heat until no longer pink. Remove with a slotted spoon, drain, reserve 2 T drippings.

In the drippings, saute onion and pepper until crisp-tender. Stir in the broth, tomatoes, apple juice, parsley, garlic, basil, oregano and sausages. Bring to a boil; add pasta. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 10-15 minutes or until pasta is tender.
