From Olive Garden Recipe Card. I love Italian Sausage & Peppers. I love pasta. È un'unione fatta nel cielo!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Pre-heat oven to 350ºF.
  2. BAKE sausage links in oven for 20 minutes or until completely cooked. Cut sausages in half lengthwise; then cut into 1/2" slices. Result will be semi-circles of sausage. Set aside.
  3. SAUTE pepper slices in olive oil until their crispness is lost, but not soft.
  4. CHOP tomatoes or use a food processor on “pulse”; do not puree tomatoes.
  5. COMBINE chopped tomatoes, tomato puree, garlic, olive oil and fresh basil in sauce pan. Bring to a simmer. Add sausage pieces and stir well.
  6. TRANSFER cooked, drained pasta to large serving platter. Top with sausage & pepper marinara mixture.
  7. GARNISH with parsley and grated Parmesan cheese.
