Italian Sausage, Veggies, Tomato Sauce All Together

We posted Italian Sausage and Peppers before where you cooked the Italian sausage and the veggies in separate hot pans with no liquid. If you liked that then you will like it this way too. It’s gluten free if you substitute some kind of veggie thing for the pasta. I just couldn’t do that for my plate but we still took care of Gammy with some Spaghetti Squash. Put the biggest frying pan you own on the stove at medium heat with about 2 tbsp. of olive oil.

Potatoes in the pan!
Add the potatoes

Slice up 2 medium red potatoes or 1 full sized idaho,,whatever. Push the sausage out to the side of the pan and put the potatoes in the middle. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Cook them until they just start to get brown on the bottom. While they’re cooking, core seed and cut up the red and the green pepper. Cut up a medium size onion in to strips.

Chop up 6-8 cloves of garlic. push everything in the pan out to the sides and add the chopped garlic to the bare spot in the middle. Put about 2 tbsp. of water on the garlic so that it will cook a little without getting brown. Give the garlic about a minute then toss everything together.

The tomatoes have arrived

Put a pot of lightly salted water on to boil for the pasta. When the pasta water boils add the pasta to it and stir it up. While you are waiting for the water to boil add 3-4 cups of marinara sauce or 3-4 roma tomatoes chopped up or a 28 oz can of crushed tomatoes. Whichever you choose you can’t go wrong. Don’t worry about it. Let it all simmer until the potatoes and peppers are as soft as YOU want them, 6- 8 minutes more. Don’t forget to toss it all pretty regularly. For Gammy’s gluten free dish she choose Spaghetti Squash the we had leftover in the freezer so I nuked some of that.
