Monday night I wanted an easy, quick dinner to put on the table. I had some sweet Italian Sausage in the freezer and peppers were on sale at the grocery store.
I cleaned and sliced the peppers and onions on Sunday night while preparing our dinner. When I came home on Monday night all I needed to do was saute the peppers/onions and fry up the sausage.
While the sausage was cooking, I made a quick version of Marcella Hazan’s Tomato Sauce with Butter.
The recipe couldn’t be easier, it has three ingredients – canned tomatoes, an onion, and butter. It is so simple yet amazingly flavorful sauce. The tomatoes become so sweet, you don’t need to add anything but pasta!
I cooked up some frozen spinach and cheese ravioli as a side dish to the sausage, peppers and onions. It is a meal we eat often in our house. In the summer, I skewer peppers, onions and sausage, then grill them and serve them with a side of pasta or if it is really hot out, I make a nice cold pasta salad. It is one of my go to weeknight dinners.
What do you make for dinner that is easy to prepare and everyone loves to eat?
