Salsiccia (Sausage) Ragu Sauce

One night I was looking to create something different to go over pasta. I had sausage, roasted red peppers and a can of San Marzano Tomatoes (if you haven't tried these tomatoes yet, it's time!). This is what I came up with. My boyfriend and Mom both said I had a winner. Hope you try and enjoy!

Serves:

Prep:

20 Min

Cook:

45 Min

Method:

Stove Top

Ingredients

6
sausage links, removed from casings
1 small
onion, halved and sliced
1/2 jar(s)
roasted red peppers, sliced
2 - 3 clove
garlic, chopped
2 tsp
fresh oregano, chopped
1 can(s)
san marzano tomatoes
salt and pepper, to taste
1/2 lb
cooked pasta
fresh grated parmesan cheese

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Remove the sausages from their casings and break up into smaller pieces. Brown sausage, onions, salt and black pepper in a little olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. When the onions are almost translucent and the sausage almost browned, add the garlic and red peppers. Simmer until the sausage is all browned.
2
Remove the whole tomatoes from the sauce with a spoon (reserve the sauce for another recipe) and squish them into the pan. I just used my hand. Add the oregano and simmer on low for about 45 minutes.
3
Next add about a half pound of cooked pasta to the pan and stir it up for a few minutes so the pasta will absorb all the flavors. I used egg noodles but you can use your favorite pasta. I also topped it with fresh grated Parmesan cheese and warm Italian bread.
4
Just a note: I kept hearing about "San Marzano" tomatoes on the cooking shows. I highly recommend them! The taste is distinctively different than regular whole tomatoes from a can. They say right on the can "Imported from Italy". I believe it! Try not to substitute them. It just wouldn't be the same. Enjoy!
