  • 1 1/2 pounds Italian sausage
  • 1 1/3 cups chopped green bell pepper
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 3/4 pound cooked ziti pasta
  • 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese
  • 2 tablespoons parsley
  • 5 cups marinara sauce

  • 10 3/4 ounces tomato puree
  • 1 teaspoons garlic mined
  • 4 tablespoons olive oil

Instructions

  • Bake or pan-fry the sausages until fully cooked; drain and cool. Halve the sausages and cut the split sausages into 1/2" slices. Saute the bell peppers in olive oil over moderate heat only until their crispness is lost, but peppers are not soft. In a heavy sauce pan, add the tomatoes, tomato puree, garlic, olive oil, and fresh basil and bring to a light simmer on moderate heat. Add the sauteed pepper strips and cooked sausage and heat for 3 to 5 minutes.
    Serve the pasta, topped with the sausage, peppers and salsa marinara and garnish each plate with a parsley bouquet. Pass the Parmesan.
