How to Make Sausage and peppers


  • 1Slice the sausage into bite sized rounds, and set aside.
  • 2Prepare the peppers in chunks approximately the same size as the sausage pieces, and set aside.
  • 3Peel, quarter and separate the onion, and set aside.
  • 4Mince the garlic.
  • 5In 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.
  • 6Once 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.
  • 7When the sausage is almost cooked through, add in the peppers, and a few minutes after that, the white wine.
  • 8As the pasta is finishing, cover the sausage mixture and remove it from the heat (it will continue to simmer and cook the peppers).
  • 9After 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.
  • 10Serve 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.
  • 11Sit back and revel in the compliments. I know I do! And yes, "can't talk, eating" is a compliment ;-)
