This is a creation that’s based on a recipe from a Better Homes and Gardens cookbook. Daniel makes it his way and I make it my way.


One pound sweet Italian sausage

One cup hot, hot water

One beef bouillon cube

Three sweet peppers:  red, yellow and orange

1/2 pound bow tie pasta

Water and salt for boiling the pasta

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERASlice up the Italian sausage into coins and then into fourths; it cooks faster this way.  Put into a hot skillet and brown thoroughly on medium high heat.  Start boiling water, lots of it and salt it.  I always use my big pot and cover it tightly; it seems to come to a boil quicker.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAMake your beef broth with the hot water and bouillon cube; set aside.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERASlice up your peppers; set them aside.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAIf your sausage is cooked through and browned thoroughly, turn it off.  Let the pasta water come to a rolling boil.


My box of pasta says it needs 11-12 minutes to become al dente.  Toss in your pasta and stir occasionally; set timer for 12 minutes.  When timer is down to 8 minutes, pour the beef bouillon into the sausage and turn on medium.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAWhen the timer is down to 5 minutes, add the peppers and stir together.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERADrain the pasta and pour it into serving bowl.  Pour the meat and pepper mixture on top and gently blend.  Serve HOT with bread.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAYum!  I didn’t have an Italian bread but had a French baguette.  Daniel sliced it up and everything was delicious.
