5 links Hot Italian Sausage, casing removed and cut into 1/2-inch pieces
1 large Green Pepper, chopped
1 medium Yellow Onion, chopped
1 TB Minced Garlic
6 oz Mushrooms, cleaned and chopped
1/2 cup Dry White Wine
2 tsp Dry Italian Seasoning
1-1/2 tsp Kosher Salt
1/2 tsp Ground Black Pepper
2 jars Mezzetta Roasted Red Peppers, half of liquid drained then pureed
1/2 cup Half and Half
4 oz Cream Cheese
2 oz Grated Parmesan Cheese
Grated Parmesan Cheese for Garnish
Red Pepper Flakes for Garnish
Cooked Whole Wheat Spaghetti or Pasta of Your Choice
In a large skillet, brown the sausage pieces over medium-high heat, about 8 minutes, stirring occasionally. When the sausage is no longer pink add the peppers, onions, garlic and mushrooms and cook until the vegetables have softened, about 5 minutes.
Add the wine to the skillet to deglaze the bottom, stirring to loosen and browned bits from the pan. When the wine has reduced by half, add the remaining ingredients to the pan, stir and simmer for 15 to 20 minutes or until the cream cheese has melted.
Spoon the sauce over cooked pasta and serve with a sprinkle of grated Parmesan cheese and red pepper flakes. Enjoy!!
