Smoked Turkey Sausage Pasta & Veggies

In effort to incorporate more healthy choices in my diet, I purchased some Smoked Turkey Sausage.  I don't recall what I had in mind when I purchased it at the grocery. However, a quick check of the veggie drawer and pantry resulted in this quick and tasty supper.  I used red and green bell peppers because that is what I had handy, but I think this would work equally as well with yellow squash, zucchini, broccoli florets or asparagus.
