Living in an Italian influenced area has given me a new found love for Italian Sausage. I can’t think of a time that I actually purchased or cooked with Italian Sausage before living in New Jersey. How sad is that?
A few of my new favorite recipes are made with Italian sausage and even though this particular recipe tastes awesome made with ground beef, using Italian Sausage is my favorite way to prepare it. Seriously though, it’s delicious with ground beef. Whatever you have, just make it, you’ll love it!
Sausage and Peppers with Egg Noodles1 lb Italian Sausage or ground beef 1 large onion or two small onions, halved and sliced 1 large red bell pepper, halved and sliced 1 large green pepper, halved and sliced 5 garlic cloves, crushed (about 1 packed Tablespoon of crushed garlic) 1 16 oz. package Egg noodles 3-4 Tablespoons butter Garlic salt Salt Pepper Olive oil Parmesan cheese
Start large pot of salted water to boil for noodles. Drizzle two tablespoons of olive oil in the bottom of a LARGE frying pan. Squeeze Italian Sausage out of it’s casings and brown. If using beef just add the beef and brown (don’t forget to salt and pepper the meat if you use beef.) Once meat is browned add chopped peppers, onions and garlic. Salt and pepper the veggies. Cover meat and peppers and stir occasionally. Add the noodles to the boiling water and cook for 7 minutes or according to package directions. Drain noodles well and add butter and garlic salt to taste. Meat and peppers are done when peppers and onions are soft. Serve Sausage and peppers over the noodles and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese. Mmmmm Mmmmm Mmmmmm.
The smell of this cooking is reason enough to make this dinner. Hope you like it!
