For those of you who were waiting on pins and needles for my recipe.

My Semi-Redneck Italian Venison Sausage and Peppers

First, the ingredients...
For this recipe, I planned on making a lot, just an fyi...
1.75 lbs homemade Italian venison sausage
2 each of red, green and yellow peppers
2 onions
2-1lb boxes penne pasta
2 cans Arribiata pasta sauce
2 packages shredded cheese (I chose Italian style, but mozzerella works well also)


1 beer of your choosing, I chose Dortmunder Gold


Start by cooking sausage in skillet


Slice up peppers and onions.


Sample beer.


Once the sausage is cooked, remove and set aside. Add a few tablespoons of olive oil to pan.


Now is also a good time to start boiling the pasta.

Sautee peppers and onions, covered, until slightly tender, but still crisp.


Sample beer again.


While peppers are sauteeing, slice sausage on an angle.


Take another swig...

Once peppers and onions are satisfactorily cooked to aldente, add sauce to pan.


Bottoms up.


After slurping back some brew, add sausage to sauce/peppers. Mix all together and bring to a low simmer for about 5-10 minutes.


Remove cooked pasta (aldente please!) to large bowl.


Drink a bit more.


Pour sauce/peppers/sausage mixture on top of pasta.


Almost there...


Add cheese.


Upon realizing your bowl is too small, remove to larger bowl, mix well, and finish beer.


Open up another beer, and serve with ceasar salad and garlic bread. Yee-haw!

For Full-Redneck Italian, all cooking should be performed wearing a "Kiss the Cook" apron, inside a cabin. In addition, Busch Light, Jack Daniels or 'shine may be substituted for Great Lakes Dortmunder Gold.. lol lol lol

Thank you sir. But really, it's pretty simple. Anybody can do it, and it's pretty damn tough to mess up. Maybe if I made my own sauce, too... but that's too much effort.

That's good stuff.

I do the same thing a lot of the times I'm cooking for myself. Boil Pasta, find stuff to go in it, then add sauce...not quite as elaborate or good lookin though!
