Sausage And Peppers With Egg Noodles

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 Noodles

1 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
Olive oil
Parmesan cheese

Ingredients For Pasta

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!

I tell ya – there is nothing like Italian food on the east coast! I am totally jealous, Maria, that you get to be in the middle of all that yumminess out there. This recipe looks delish! I have a funny story about sausage and peppers when I lived in NY. My coworkers would make fun of me because of my “western” accent and because I couldn’t say sausage (SAWR-sage) or peppers (PEP-pahs) right. Anyway, thanks for the recipe and for the funny memory. :)

The awesome Italian food out here is definatly one of the best things about living here. It sounds like you need to come visit us Jileen. :) Ican totally hear you saying sausage and peppers with a southern accent and it is making me laugh. I get in trouble because I say (eye-talian) instead of (italian) with a soft I sound.

Wow, this was a great recipe. I substituted poblano peppers for the green and red peppers because I like it a little spicier. I served this with thin sliced granny smith apples fanned out on the plate and sprinkled with a little sugar and cinnamon. This balances out the savory spiciness of the main dish. I highly recommend this dish!
