- 1 box Barilla bow tie pasta
- 1 can diced tomatoes
- 1/2 red onion cut into thin strips
- 1 red pepper seeded and cored, cut into thin rings and then the rings cut in half
- 1 tbsp. olive oil
- parmesan optional
- 1 tsp. kosher salt
- 1 c. red wine Chianti is preferred1/2 tbsp. black pepper
- 2 tbsp. red wine vinegar
- 2 tbsp. sugar
- 2 tbsp. garlic minced
- 1 tsp. dried oregano
- In a 2 qt. sauce pan, heat oil to a medium heat. Add sausage, garlic, onion, and red peppers. Sauté until onions are translucent. Add red wine and mix thoroughly, allowing red pepper and onions to soak up the wine. Add salt, black pepper, red wine vinegar, sugar, oregano, and tomatoes. Stir well and cover.
- Allow to work on stovetop for 45 minutes over medium heat, stirring every few minutes to avoid burning the tomatoes. Ten minutes before sauce is finished, prepare noodles in well salted water. (Water should taste like the ocean.) Prepare pasta as directed on box. Do not allow to over cook. Drain pasta and lightly cover with olive oil, mixing to avoid sticking. Return pasta to pot, making sure not to place the pot back on the hot burner. At this point, you want to taste the sauce; add extra sugar if it’s too acidic. After sauce is satisfactory, toss pasta with sauce and serve.
