    glitter's Note:

    It seems like I make this with my eyes closed already. The family loves it as well as guests. You can make as much as you want and if you are lucky to have leftovers, it's better the second time around. Enjoy!

    1. 1
      In a large,skillet brown the sausage until it is cooked through.
    2. 2
      Drain the fat and drain the sausage on paper towels.
    3. 3
      In the same pan heat your olive oil add and sauté the peppers, and onions, until the onion is translucent,then add the garlic and sauté gently but do not brown your garlic.
    4. 4
      This will make the dish bitter.
    5. 5
      The vegetables should be tender.
    6. 6
      Stir in the tomatoes, spices, Romano cheese and sausage.
    7. 7
      Cover the pan and simmer all over a medium-low heat for 8-10 minute.
    8. 8
      If your mixture seems too thick you can add a little water or red wine.
    9. 9
      While the meat mixture is cooking, the pasta can be prepared as per directions.
    10. 10
      You do not want to overcook your pasta.
    11. 11
      You want a little firmness to your noodles.
    12. 12
      When you are ready to serve use a large platter.
    13. 13
      The noodles first, then spoon the meat mixture over.
    14. 14
      Mix slightly.
    15. 15
      Sprinkle with the Parigiano-Reggiano and place your fresh basil leaves atop.
    16. 16
      This goes well with a full bodied red wine, a green salad with Italian oil and vinegar dressing, and most of all a good hard crusted peasant bread.

      Good, quick, use whatever you have kind of recipe. Added frozen yellow & green squash from my summer garden & sliced mushrooms. Did add 1/2 cp chkn broth & only had dried herbs, but was very good. Some dried red peppers would add extra zest. Thanks!

      Everyone loved this... kids even had seconds. We used Colosimo's Mild Italian sausage (purchased from Costco... used 4 links). I used only 1 T olive oil, which was plenty for the vegetables. I didn't have romano cheese, so I used fresh Parmesan. Also, I didn't have fresh basil, so I used 2 tsp. dry basil... it was great and will be part of our regular rotation (a few times a year). I love that it is rich in vegetables. Next time I make it, I'll use a whole grain pasta, and maybe 50% more veggies. Thanks for a great recipe!

      We used this recipe as a base, and changed it up a little. We used ground mild italian sausage, home canned tomatoes, and doubled the recipe. When it was almost done, I added a package of cream cheese.The tomatoes were juicy, so I added a bit of cornstarch to thicken. It was so yummy. We had it on angel hair pasta, as that was all we had on hand.
