Sausage, Onion, and Green Pepper Fra Diavolo

This recipe was something I threw together the past evening and based off another recipe that I found.  Everything was onhand and Chris really seemed to enjoy it so guess that makes it a winner :).

1 Hr

  • 4 tablespoons olive oil, divided
  • 6 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 3 cups whole peeled tomatoes with liquid, chopped
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1 (16 ounce) package penne pasta
  • 1 (12 ounce) package John Morrell Smoked Sausage, sliced
  • 1/2 onion, sliced
  • 1/2 green pepper, seeded and sliced  

  1. In a large saucepan, heat 2 tablespoons of the olive oil with the garlic over medium heat. When the garlic starts to sizzle, pour in the tomatoes. Season with salt and red pepper. Bring to a boil. Lower the heat, and simmer for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  2. Meanwhile, bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook pasta according to package directions, or until al dente; drain.
  3. In a large skillet, heat the remaining 2 tablespoons of olive oil over high heat. Add the sausage and saute until lightly browned. Add peppers and onions and cook until tender. Add sausage, peppers, and onions to the tomato mixture. Cook for 3 to 4 minutes, or until the sauce just begins to bubble. Toss with hot pasta and serve.
