Sausage with Peppers and Onions


serves 6

4 tablespoons olive oil
1 pound sweet Italian turkey sausage
1 red bell pepper, sliced into strips
1 yellow bell pepper, sliced into strips
1 large sweet onion, sliced
3 cloves of garlic, minced
1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1 cup chicken stock
1 teaspoon oregano
1 pound whole wheat pasta
Parmesan cheese, to serve

In a large fry pan, brown the sausages in 2 tablespoons of the olive oil.  Cook, turning the sausages, until they are about half cooked through.  Remove and set aside.

Add the other 2 tablespoons of olive oil to the pan and add the onions and peppers for several minutes, stirring occasionally.  Add the garlic, the red pepper flakes and the oregano. 

Slice the sausage into 2 inch pieces and add to the vegetables.  Pour the chicken stock into the pan and cover.  Cook for 5 to 7 minutes.  Take the lid off and cook for a few minutes more, until the sausage is cooked through.  Season to taste with salt and pepper.

Meanwhile, boil the pasta until al dente.  Drain and place on a large platter.  Top with the sausage and peppers.  Grate parmesan over and serve.
