I made this the other night and my husband loved it. It is a perfect size for 2, or can easily be doubled. I used spicy chicken sausage and found that it balanced the sweetness of the peppers. From Bon Appetit.
- 1⁄2 lb Italian turkey sausage (hot or sweet) or 1⁄2 lb chicken sausage, casings removed (hot or sweet)
- 2 large bell peppers, cut into strips (red and green or yellow)
- 1 medium onion, thinly sliced
- 1 large garlic clove, chopped
- 1 cup dry white wine
- 1⁄2 lb linguine
- 1⁄4 cup grated parmesan cheese
- Sauté sausages in heavy large skillet over medium-high heat until light brown, breaking up clumps with back of spoon, about 5 minutes.
- Add bell peppers, onion and garlic and sauté until tender and golden brown, about 12 minutes.
- Add wine; simmer until liquid is slightly reduced, about 6 minutes.
- Meanwhile, cook linguine in large pot of boiling salted water until just tender but still firm to bite. Drain pasta.
- Add pasta to skillet; toss to combine.
- Add 1/4 cup Parmesan; toss to blend. Season with salt and pepper. Serve pasta, passing additional cheese separately.
- 2 Servings; can be doubled.
I used grana padano cheese rather than the parmesan and a nice, spicy sausage. The dish is quickly and easily prepared and tastes so good.
