Sausage & Peppers Ziti Marinara

1 1/2 lbs sweet or hot Italian sausages links
1 1/3 cups green bell pepper, seeded & cut into 1” x ¼” strips
1 can Italian-style or plum tomatoes, including liquid (28 oz)
1 can tomato puree (10 3/4 oz)
1 tsp garlic cloves, chopped finely
4 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
2 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
1/2 cup basil, fresh, chopped finely, firmly packed
Salt & pepper to taste
1 lb ziti or penne pasta, cooked according to package directions
Fresh parsley, chopped
Parmesan cheese, grated

Pre-heat oven to 350º. Bake sausage links in oven for 20 minutes or until completely cooked. Cut sausages in half lengthwise; then cut into 1/2" slices. Result will be semi-circles of sausage. Set aside.

Saute pepper slices in olive oil until their crispness is lost, but not soft. Chop tomatoes or use a food processor on “pulse”; do not puree tomatoes.

Combine chopped tomatoes, tomato puree, garlic, olive oil and fresh basil in sauce pan. Bring to a simmer. Add sausage pieces and stir well. Transfer cooked, drained pasta to large serving platter. Top with sausage & pepper marinara mixture. Garnish with parsley and grated Parmesan cheese. Servers 4
