Sweet Italian Sausage with Tomatoes and Peppers

This is a quick meal that takes about 35 minutes to cook.  You can alternatively use hot sausage instead of the sweet sausage.

  • So I have used a lot of tomatoes recently and wanted to share the benefits of eating tomatoes with all of you.
  • Tomatoes are      full of Lycopene which is a powerful  inhibitor of the growth of breast, endometrium (inner lining of the uterus) and lung cancer cells.
  • Tomatoes are good for the eyes. Lycopene, the most  abundant carotenoid in the blood serum, was found to be the key antioxidant that guards against ARMD (Age-Related Macular Degeneration), a condition that may cause blindness.
  • Tomatoes are high in Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Calcium and  Potassium
  • Lycopene is an inhibitor to heart disease, and colon cancer.

All very good reasons to have tomatoes in your life!

So for tonight’s dinner we need the following items.

1 package of Hot or Sweet Sausage cut into bite size pieces (using kitchen shears works really well)

1 Large green Bell pepper chopped

2 medium onions chopped

2 cloves garlic minced

1 28oz can tomatoes

1 tsp oregano

Shredded cheese (any flavor you like)

Salt and Pepper

2 tsp brown sugar

Cooked pasta

In a large skillet cook the bite size pieces of sausage over medium high heat for about 10 minutes or until almost cooked through.

Cook the Sausage in bite size pieces until almost cooked through

Add the Onions, peppers, garlic and oregano and continue to sauté for 2 to 3 minutes before adding the tomatoes and salt and pepper.

Add the tomatoes and simmer for about ten minutes until thickened

Reduce to simmer and allow to thicken about 10 more minutes

Cook the pasta and add the brown sugar to the sausage mixture.

Once the pasta is done, top with the sausage mixture and some cheese.
