Description

A ruffled pasta with sausage and peppers in a creamy white wine cayenne tomato sauce that is dreamy and delicious!

Ingredients

  • 8 ounces, weight Campanella Pasta (or Whichever You Have On Hand)
  • 1 pound Italian Sausage
  • 1 Tablespoon Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 3 whole Cloves Garlic, Minced
  • 1 whole Red Bell Pepper, Chopped Into 1" Pieces
  • 1 whole Yellow (or Green) Bell Pepper, Chopped Into 1" Pieces
  • 1 whole Small Onion, Chopped Into 1" Pieces
  • ¾ cups White Wine
  • 28 ounces, weight Diced Tomatoes
  • 1 teaspoon Basil
  • 1 dash Salt And Pepper, to taste
  • 3 teaspoons Cayenne Pepper
  • 1 Tablespoon Cornstarch

Preparation

1. Dice peppers, garlic, and onion and set aside.

2. Add a dash of salt to a pot of water and bring to a boil for pasta. Follow package directions to cook pasta to al dente.

3. Saute sausage on medium high heat until brown, and then remove from pan. Drain all but 1 teaspoon of the drippings. Add oil, garlic, peppers and onion, and sauté until translucent. Then add the wine. Deglaze the pan with wine, scraping up browned bits. Reduce the wine to half, by cooking over medium heat for 4-5 minutes.

4. Add tomatoes (undrained) to pan, along with basil, salt and pepper, and cayenne. Cook for 10 minutes on medium to medium high heat until flavors are even and rich.

5. Remove a ladleful of the liquid from the pan into a small bowl, add cornstarch and mix until creamy. Add this back into the sauce, stirring throughout. If the sauce is still too runny, you can repeat this process with another tablespoon of cornstarch and ladleful of sauce. Serve sauce over the pasta.

*Adjust cayenne to your desired spice level!

This was pretty good although I only used 1 t of cayenne and it was plenty for us. My husband and I make another pepper/sausage dish, and my husband definitely wants to replace that one with this recipe. We are looking forward to eating the leftovers today!
