Pasta, Frank Sinatra
Thanks to Jeri, my mom, this is another of my favorite recipes just as it was Frank Sinatra's, and for good reason: it's delicious! This pasta dish is perfect for when you have another couple over on a chilly fall/winter evening paired with a bottle or two of Pinot or Cab, a warm fire, and the Sarah Bareilles Pandora station. It's a fairly easy dish to prepare (depending on who you're asking), and there's a lot of "sip" time. What I mean by that is after the sausage and peppers/onions are cooked down and placed in the baking dish, you have a good hour or so, while it's baking, to sit and sip on wine with your guests!
1. Brown sweet Italian sausage (not cooked all the way)
2. Sauté 3 bell peppers and 3/4 white onion with a little olive oil, salt, and pepper
3. Place sausage, peppers, onions in a baking dish and add ~ 1/2 bottle of red wine
4. Bake @350 for ~1 hour
5. Serve over wheat angel hair pasta with a little freshly grated parmesan cheese
