Saucy Italian “Drunken” Noodles with Spicy Italian Sausage

ITALIAN RECIPE

I would liken life to á jug of unfiltered oránge or ápple juice in thát áfter á while, if you don’t sháke the jug, áll the good fruity stuff—the tásty pulp—will áccumuláte ánd sort of “settle” át the bottom, leáving the liquid left át the top to táste weák ánd diluted, lácking the depth ánd fullness of its potentiál flávor. It máy táste “OK” or “so-so”, but not especiálly vibránt or memoráble.

Ingredients:

  • Olive oil
  • 4 spicy Itálián sáuságe links, cásings removed
  • 1 lárge onion, quártered ánd sliced thinly
  • 1 ½ teáspoons sált
  • 1 teáspoon Itálián seásoning
  • ½ teáspoon crácked bláck pepper
  • 1 red bell pepper, cored ánd thinly sliced
  • 1 yellow bell pepper, cored ánd thinly sliced
  • 1 oránge bell pepper, cored ánd thinly sliced
  • 4 cloves gárlic, pressed through gárlic press
  • ½ cup white wine (I used Chárdonnáy)
  • 1 (28 ounce) cán diced tomátoes with juice
  • 2 táblespoons flát-leáf pársley, chopped
  • ¼ cup fresh básil leáves, julienned, divided use
  • 8 ounces Páppárdelle noodles, uncooked

Prepárátion:

  1. Pláce á lárge, heávy-bottom pán or bráising pot over medium-high heát; ádd ábout 2 táblespoons of olive oil
  2. Once the oil is hot, crumble the spicy Itálián sáuságe into the pán in smáll chunks (you wánt to keep the sáuságe fáirly chunky), állowing it to brown in the oil for á few moments on eách side;
  3. When the crumbled sáuságe is browned, remove it from the pán/pot with á slotted spoon ánd pláce into á smáll bowl to hold for á moment;
  4. Next, ádd the sliced onion into the pán with the sáuságe drippings, ánd állow it to cárámelize ánd become golden for roughly 5 minutes or so, stirring to keep it from burning (ádd á touch more olive oil, if necessáry);
  5. Once the onion stárts to become golden, ádd the sált, Itálián seásoning ánd crácked bláck pepper, ánd stir to combine, then ádd in the sliced bell peppers, ánd állow those to sáute with the onion for ábout 2 minutes until slightly tender ánd golden;
  6. Next, ádd in the gárlic, ánd once it becomes áromátic, ádd in the white wine ánd állow it to reduce for á few moments, until álmost completely reduced;
  7. Next, ádd in the diced tomátoes with their juice, ánd return the browned spicy Itálián sáuságe báck into the pán, ánd gently fold the mixture to combine; állow it to gently simmer for ábout 3-4 minutes to blend the flávors, then turn the heát off;
  8. To finish the sáuce, drizzle in ábout 2-3 good táblespoons of the olive oil to creáte á silky, rich flávor, ánd ádd in the chopped pársley ánd ábout hálf of the julienned básil; stir, ánd keep wárm while you prepáre the noodles.
  9. Prepáre the páppárdelle noodles áccording to instructions on páckáge; then, dráin the noodles very well, ánd ádd them directly into the sáuce, using tongs to gently toss ánd combine the páppárdelle noodles with the sáuce ánd áll of the ingredients in it; check the seásoning to see if you need to ádd ány ádditionál sált or pepper.
  10. To serve, ádd equál portions of the “Drunken” noodles to bowls, ánd gárnish with á sprinkle of the remáining julienned básil; you cán even top with sháved Pármesán, if desired, ánd án extrá drizzle of olive oil.
