Sausage, Green Pepper and Onion Pasta

My favorite pizza topping combination usually involves thinly sliced green peppers and sweet onions, add sausage to the mix and you have a winner. This week, I thought I would bring the same flavors to a pasta dinner that would be both quick and delicious. So here's the run down:

I cooked up some Italian sausages (4) in the oven, 350 for 25 minutes in a foil covered pan. As they cooled, I sliced up the 1 green bell pepper and one medium yellow onion, and I minced 2 cloves of garlic as well. Once the sausage had cooled enough to handle, I sliced them diagonally and tossed them into a frying pan with about 2 tbsps of olive oil. Once they browned in went the green peppers, onions, garlic, and a dash of red pepper flakes for heat.

In the meantime, I boiled some water and poured in about 1/2 a pound of whole wheat spaghetti. Once this was al dente and the peppers and onions were softened and a little browned I mixed it all together and added about a 1/2 cup of shredded parmesan cheese.

Super yummy, satisfying and a great way to take the pizzeria into the kitchen.

Shopping list:
Whole wheat pasta
1 green bell pepper
1 yellow onion (medium)
Red pepper flakes
Parmesan cheese
(Salt and pepper, but who doesn't have these at home?)

hello bros. I'm really into shoes and I had been looking as far as something that singular model. The prices due to the fact that the velcros are about 210 dollars on every site. But completely I bring about this location selling them as a remedy for half price. I really want those [url=]gucci sneakers[/url]. I will probably buy them. what do you think?
