I also cook sometimes.
Today, we’re having Italian Sausage and Peppers. Our ingredients are:
1 pound Italian sausage links
2 large bell peppers
1 white onion
4 Roma tomatoes
4 cloves of garlic
4 servings of Linguini
Cut the peppers and onion thin slices. Also, cook the Linguini according to the package directions.
Boil the sausages for 8 minutes and allow to cool. Remove the casing and slice into ¼ inch thick rounds. In a cast iron skillet, cook the rounds over medium-high heat for 1 to 2 minutes on each side until nicely browned.
Next, let’s get our sauce going. Remove the skin from the tomatoes (I find that a sharp potato peeler works best, but a good paring knife will do) and mash them up really well in a bowl (I used my hands.) Heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil in a small saucepan. Crush the garlic cloves and sauté in the olive oil for a few minutes, and then add the tomatoes. Bring to a soft boil, reduce heat, cover, and simmer for 6 to 8 minutes.
In your cast iron skillet, over medium-high heat, sauté the pepper and onion until it is nice and tender.
Then add the sausage and continue cooking until the sausage is heated through. Now add the sauce that you’ve had simmering quietly off to the side, there. Toss everything together until the sauce coats everything.
Serve over the Linguini. Serves 4. Enjoy!
