In a large skillet, cook sausage over medium heat until cooked through. Drain fat if necessary.

Add peppers, onion, macaroni, water and marinara sauce. Bring to a boil then reduce heat and cover. Simmer, stirring occasionally, for 12-15 minutes or until pasta is tender.

Stir in shredded cheese and half & half and mix thoroughly. Gently fold in cherry tomatoes and season with salt & pepper. Remove from heat, re-cover and let sit for a few minutes until cheese is fully melted and the tomatoes have soften. Garnish with fresh basil.
