  • 1 pound Italian sausage links
  • 10 ounces penne pasta cooked according to directions - only cook a couple of minutes less, so the pasta is al dente
  • 1 green bell pepper sliced into thin strips
  • 1 red bell pepper sliced into thin strips
  • 1 small yellow onion sliced into thin strips
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 6 oz tomato paste
  • 8 oz tomato sauce
  • 1/2 cup red or white wine I used white cooking wine
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 3/4 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • Parmesan cheese for topping


  1. Heat the olive oil in a large pan over medium heat.
  2. Cook sausage so that it's browned on all sides, and cooked through.
  3. Remove the sausage, leaving behind the oil and juices from the sausage. Set aside.
  4. Cook your peppers in the same pan that you just cooked the sausage.
  5. Once your peppers are sauted to your liking, add the sausage, and deglaze the pan with the wine.
  6. Stir in the tomato paste, tomato sauce, seasonings, sugar, and pasta.
  7. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer, covered for 8 to 10 minutes, or until the pasta has finished cooking.
  8. Serve hot with parmesan cheese.
