For some reason, when looking at this picture I just want to start singing Christmas carols. “It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas” … in my bowl 🙂
Anyway, this is one of Hubs’ favorite dinners. It was another Sunday evening creation that has made its way into our regular rotation. Enjoy!
1lb pasta – whatever you have is fine (I used thin linguine tonight)
1 package Sweet Italian Sausage
1 Red Pepper, diced
1 Small White Onion, diced
1 Green Pepper, diced
2 Cloves Garlic
1T Olive Oil
S&P to taste
Cook pasta according to package directions.
In a separate pan (or in microwave), cook sausage until internal temperature reaches 160 degrees. Slice and set aside.
In another pot or deep skillet melt oil and butter over medium-high heat. Add onions, red pepper and green pepper. Cook 5 minutes, or until they begin to soften. Add garlic and cook for 2 minutes. Add sausage and pasta to the pan and toss to incorporate everything. I finished the dish with about 1/4C of reserved pasta water – just to make a little ‘sauce’.
