I have a simple but yummy recipe to share with you! I found this in Southern Living and thought I’d give it a try. It was a bit of a stretch for us as I worried that the kids would certainly turn up their noses. However, it sounded really good, so I went for it!
Spaghetti with Sausage and Peppers
You need:
1 pound of Italian sausage (I used mild) with casings removed
1 pound of cooked spaghetti noodles
Stoplight peppers (red, yellow and green) cut into strips
1 onion cut into eighths
2 garlic cloves minced
Some olive oil
1 can of diced tomatoes seasoned with basil, oregano and garlic
S&P…I also sprinkled in a little basil, oregano and garlic because my tomatoes were plain.
How to:
Start boiling water for spaghetti and cook
Brown sausage in a large skillet or dutch oven…break up the sausage while browning
Remove browned sausage and drain on paper towels
Add olive oil to pan and heat. Saute the peppers, onions and garlic until tender.
Add can of tomatoes and spices and simmer for a few minutes. Add sauasge back to the pan and heat through.
When noodles are cooked, drain and toss into the sauce mixture making sure noodles are well coated. Serve with a sprinkle of parm cheese on top!
This was really, really good as leftovers for lunch. The flavors had time to meld. My kids ate this. They did not actually eat the peppers, but gobbled up the noodles and some sausage. The noodles had all the flavors of the peppers and they did not mind that a bit! I was in a hurry yesterday while making this ( and therefore only had the main dish), but this would be well~ paired with crusty bread and a salad.
