In a medium sauce pot bring 4 cups of water to a boil. Once the water is boiling add the pasta and a dash of salt to the water. Allow the pasta to cook for 8 minutes.
While the pasta is cooking, heat a large pan with lid to medium heat. Then add half of the oil to the hot pan. Immediately add the chopped onions, sliced peppers, and sliced sausage to the pan with the oil.
Cook the peppers, onions, and sausage for 5 minutes. Just enough to take some of the crunch out of the veggies, but not soft. Stir frequently to prevent burning.
After 5 minutes of cooking the sausage, peppers, and onions the pasta should be done. Strain the pasta and add the pasta to the pan. Toss the pasta with the veggies and sausage.
Season everything with the pepper, garlic powder, and red pepper flake. Drizzle the remaining oil on top and toss everything together once more. Cover with the lid and cook for an additional 2 minutes.
After 2 minutes, remove the lid, toss everything one last time and serve. Or portion out for this weeks meals.
