A terrific meal of pan-fried Italian sausage with red capsicum, onion, garlic and wine, tossed with linguine and a grating of Parmesan cheese. A quick and satisfying midweek meal!


Serves: 4 

  • 250g linguine
  • 250g any Italian-style sausage, casings removed and sliced
  • 2 red capsicums, chopped
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, crushed
  • 250ml (1 cup) dry white wine
  • 1/2 cup finely grated Parmesan cheese

Preparation:20min  ›  Cook:20min  ›  Ready in:40min 

  1. Cook pasta according to packet instructions. Drain and set aside.
  2. While the pasta is cooking, prepare the sauce. Fry sliced sausages in a heavy frying pan over medium high heat until light brown.
  3. Add capsicum, onion and garlic. Continue to cook further 5 minutes. Add the wine and simmer until liquid is slightly reduced and vegetables are tender, about 6 minutes.
  4. Drain pasta and add to the pan. Toss together using 2 spoons until heated through. Add the cheese and serve.

Excellent base recipe. I added beans and mushrooms to make it more interesting. Very nice!! - 24 Aug 2009


Altered ingredient amounts. Delicious! I made it with 3 green peppers, 3 cloves of garlic, and 3 chicken sausages. I used one onion and 500g of linquine and it was perfect! - 21 Jul 2008


Altered ingredient amounts. Great and easy lunch idea! So simple to throw together! I added a variety of coloured peppers and fresh mushrooms. I couldn't belive that a few ingrediants would turn out so tasty. It doesn't make a lot and I probally wouldn't serve to guests but I WILL be making this one again! I MIGHT add a dash of crushed chilli for some heat but is good as is. Thanks Jackie! - 21 Jul 2008
