This is a recipe that Mom's notes say comes from the late 80's. I tried it last night--and it is pretty darn yummy! The veggies make it very colorful and the hot sausage adds the spice.
1/3 cup olive oil
1 medium red onion, julienned
1 red pepper, cored, seeded and julienned
1 green pepper, cored, seeded, julienned
3/4 lb. cooked rope hot sausage, slice into 1/4" rounds
2 T unsalted butter
3 cups spaghetti sauce (your own recipe--or good quality store-bought works fine)
1 lb. linguini, cooked al dente, drained
Salt and pepper to taste
Freshly grated parmesan or Romano cheese
In a large skillet, heat the olive oil and saute the onions and peppers over medium heat until soft. Stir in the sausage. Season lightly with salt and pepper. Add the butter and stir until melted.
Add the spaghetti sauce and heat through. Toss with pasta, season with salt and pepper to taste and sprinkle with cheese. Serve.
Serve 4-6 people.
