Serves 6 | Prep Time 10min | Cook Time 20min

Ingredients

1 1/2 lbs good Italian sausage, bulk sausage, or link cases removed, hot or sweet ( I use Boulder spicy Italian sausage )

1 28oz whole tomatoes, blended

6 garlic cloves minced

1 jar 16 oz cherry peppers seeds removed and sliced ( SAVE THE JUICE ) don't use the big huge jar

1/2 to 3/4 cups grated parmesan cheese

1lb pasta, I use Gemelli pasta, I wouldn't use spaghetti or linguini
something on the lines of bow tie pasta would be fine, cook according to the box.

crushed red pepper, to your liking


Cook pasta according to the box


In a large skillet brown sausage, just before fully cooked, add garlic and sliced peppers, cook about 1 to 2 min, then add your blended tomatoes, and about half of the juice from the pepper jar, I use it all, it just adds flavor, simmer for about 10 to 15 min so all the flavors come together, taste for salt, I don't add salt, cause the sausage has salt in it, but feel free to add some.


Once it has simmered ADD your cooked pasta, start with 1/2 of the pasta to make sure you don't have too much, also add the grated Parmesan cheese, mix all together.


Serve with bread and salad, YUMMY


Pairs Well With


Notes

I do a lot of cooking, and watch cooking shows. I put my own twist for this recipe.
