How to Make Sausage and peppers


  1. Slice the sausage into bite sized rounds, and set aside.
  2. Prepare the peppers in chunks approximately the same size as the sausage pieces, and set aside.
  3. Peel, quarter and separate the onion, and set aside.
  4. Mince the garlic.
  5. In your first pan, heat the olive oil and add the garlic, sauteing until it is a light golden color, then add in the onion. When the onion is translucent, add in the sausage and continue heating the mixture through (sauteing gently) on a medium heat.
  6. Once the sausage is about half way cooked (browned), start your water for the pasta. When the pasta goes in, add the herbs and spices to the sausage mixture; continuing to saute and brown.
  7. When the sausage is almost cooked through, add in the peppers, and a few minutes after that, the white wine.
  8. As the pasta is finishing, cover the sausage mixture and remove it from the heat (it will continue to simmer and cook the peppers).
  9. After the pasta is cooked and drained, place it in a large mixing bowl, add the grape tomato pieces, and toss it gently with the sausage mixture, and let stand for a few minutes.
  10. Serve with garlic bread, buns, or simply by itself. This meal pairs nicely with both red and white wine, and can be topped off with Parmesan cheese if desired.
  11. Sit back and revel in the compliments. I know I do! And yes, "can't talk, eating" is a compliment ;-)
