Yum, Yum! A tomato base spicy dish, serve over rice or noodles. I love spicy and I created this dish, instead of the hum drum sausage & peppers. Very tasty! I like it over rice, my husband prefers it over pasta, almost like a pasta sauce. Adjust the red pepper flakes and banana peppers to taste.
- 1 1⁄2-2 lbs hot Italian sausage (some butcher counters have the best!)
- 1 red pepper (cleaned & sliced- 1/4-inch slices long)
- 3 onions, sliced
- 4 -6 yellow banana peppers (sliced long)
- 1 -2 teaspoon garlic, chopped
- 1 tablespoon italian seasoning
- red pepper flakes (dash as spicy as you like!)
- 1 tomatoes (sliced thin)
- extra virgin olive oil
- sugar (dash or two)
