  • Prep Time:
  • Cook Time:
  • Servings: 4


  • (1 lb) Italian Sausage Links
  • (1 tbsp) Olive Oil
  • (1 medium, diced) Onion
  • (1 medium) Bell Pepper
  • (1-2 Large) Tomatoes
  • (1/2 cup (to start - you can always add more)) Water
  • (to taste) Salt
  • (to taste) Pepper
  • (a few leaves or 1 tsp (dry)) basil (fresh or dried)
  • (a handful of leaves or 1 tsp (dry)) Oregano (fresh or dried)
  • (1 clove (or 1 tsp dry)) Garlic
  • (8-12 oz) Pasta


Personalize the recipe to what you have available to you or your family's taste buds! Use either the links or bulk Italian Sausage in this recipe - both work great - and whatever color bell peppers you prefer. Use your family's favorite pasta shape - penne, spaghetti, elbow, etc. to personalize it, too.

  1. Start with Riemer Family Farm Italian Sausage. If using the links, slice them up into 1/2" pieces.
  2. Add olive oil to a skillet over medium heat, and add in sausage. Cook until no pink remains (bulk).
  3. Add onion, pepper, tomatoes, and garlic to skillet. (Be sure to add those tomato juices to the skillet, too)
  4. Add in 1/2 cup of water with salt, pepper, and herbs.
  5. Add in pasta. Ensure it is covered with liquid entirely. Add more water if needed.
  6. Cover skillet and reduce heat. Let simmer until sauce thickens.
  7. When noodles are just soft to the fork and sauce is thick, remove from heat, garnish with herbs and cheese, and enjoy!
