Whether you running short on time, need a quick recipe for a busy day or just want to enjoy the magic of sausage…this recipe comes to the rescue!
1 lb elbow yellow peas pasta, or any short pasta
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 hot italian sausages
4 sweet italian sausages
1 red bell pepper, large, diced
1 green bell pepper, large, diced
1 yellow bell pepper, large, diced
1 orange bell pepper, large, diced
½ white onion, sliced
2 cloves garlic, sliced
28 oz diced tomato
1 teaspoon oregano
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon black ground pepper
Bring a large pot of water to a rolling boil, add a generous amount of salt, and cook pasta 2 minutes less than the package instructions. Strain pasta and set aside. Toss with a small amount of oil to prevent sticking
In the same pot, heat 1 tbsp of olive oil and fry sausages, working in batches as needed, until deeply browned on all sides. Remove sausages, slice in ¾-inch (2 cm) rings, and set aside.
Sauté all of the bell peppers, onion, and garlic for about 2 minutes. Add the diced tomatoes, all of the spices, and the sausage slices to the pot. Simmer about 10 minutes.
Add the pasta and stir gently until all the ingredients are coated in the sauce. Continue simmering until pasta is al dente.
Serve with grated parmesan.
