What you’ll need
- 1 pound sweet Italian sausage
- 1 large green bell pepper
- 1 onion, chopped
- 10 oz fresh mushrooms, sliced
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 2 tbsp fresh basil, chopped
- 1/2 tsp Italian seasoning
- 16 oz tomato sauce
- 1/4 tsp red pepper flakes
- 1 pound gemelli (or pasta of your choice)
- salt and pepper to taste
Prepare pasta according to instructions on the package.
In a medium sauce pan, bring water to a boil. Place sausages inside, boil for about 3 minutes, or just long enough to be able to cut them into slices. Heat oil in a large skillet. Add sausage and pan fry until golden brown.
Add peppers, onions, mushrooms, basil and garlic. Stir well. Cover and cook over low-medium heat for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Add seasoning and tomato sauce, stir well and simmer for about 5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Add pasta and serve hot.
