1 pkg spicy Italian sausage
2 bell peppers, sliced
1 large onion, sliced
3 cloves garlic, sliced
1 jar tomato sauce,
6 frozen basil cubes
2 tbsp tomato paste
salt & pepper
lots of parmesan
tri-colored rotini pasta (or crusty bread)
The sausage will usually be in casings, but it's surprisingly not that hard getting it out, Squeeze the middle and take out one half and then the other.
Break up the sauce into bite sized pieces, if you're going for the meatball look.
Cook the sausage in a medium pan, on medium heat (no oil needed) til browned.
Take out the sausage and toss the grease (you can cook with it, but it will discolor the onions) Wipe down the pan of remaining oils, add olive oil, once warmed, add the onions, cook til starting to get a golden color,
Add peppers, cook for around ten minutes.
Add garlic, cook 30 seconds and add tomato sauce
Also add tomato paste, basil, salt and pepper and tomato paste, Bring to a boil and simmer another 5 minutes,
Add sausage and warm through.
Boil pasta to instructions, after drained, add directly to the sauce.
Serve warm with more parm.
You can also eat this on crusty bread.
