  • 1 tablespoon olive oil plus more for drizzling
  • 2 pounds sweet Italian Sausage torn into bite-sized pieces
  • 3 red bell peppers cut into 1" chunks
  • 3 green bell peppers cut into 1" chunks
  • 3 sweet onions cut into 1" chunks
  • 3/4 teaspoons salt
  • 1/2 teaspoons black pepper

  • 1 1/2 pounds spaghetti cooked al-dente
  • Parmesan cheese


  • Preheat oven to 350 F.
  • Spray a large casserole dish with non-stick spray.
  • Heat oil over medium-high heat in large skillet. You need a skillet large enough to hold the meat, veggies, and pasta, so if you don't have a really large one, use a big pot instead.
  • Add sausage and cook until done.
  • Meanwhile, cook the pasta until almost done. Drain well.
  • Remove sausage with a slotted spoon.
  • Add in the peppers and onion and cook until starting to soften, 8-10 minutes.
  • Season with salt and pepper and add the garlic and cook another minute.
  • Remove from heat. Stir the meat back into the veggies.
  • Add the pasta to the pan and stir well.
  • Pour mixture into the casserole, cover with foil, and bake 35-40 minutes.
  • Serve drizzled with a little olive oil and sprinkled with freshly grated Parmesan cheese.
