Instructions
  1. I like to use a heavy-duty dutch oven for this dish. A large pot will work well or a big saute pan with high sides. I warm 1 tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil up and then put the ground Italian sausage inside the pot on a medium-high heat setting. You should also season your meat with the Italian seasonings, garlic salt, and pepper at this point. Continue cooking until slightly browned a cooked thoroughly.

  2. Once the Italian sausage is done browning, remove it from the pot and place it in a container. You will be using it again soon.

  3. Begin boiling the water for your pappardelle pasta. Do the next steps while you wait for the water to boil. Boil the noodles until al dente.
  4. Keep the remnants (fat) of the cooked sausage in the bottom of the pot. You will be caramelizing your onions in this flavorful fat. If you need to add more olive oil to the pot to cook the onions add very little. Once the onions begin caramelizing you can put your minced garlic in the pot along with the onions.

  5. Now comes the fun part! I pour in 3/4 of a cup of Chardonnay into the pot with the garlic and onion mixture. I do this at a medium-high setting and continuing cooking until the wine becomes a bit reduced.
  6. Place your sliced red and yellow peppers into the pot and cook them until slightly softened.

  7. Well drain your can of diced tomatoes and place those in the pot. Warm them up.
  8. Hopefully at this point your noodles have boiled and ready to be drained. Please make sure they are cooked al dente.
  9. Place the ground sausage back into the pot on a low-medium setting.
  10. Add a little bit of chopped basil to the pot as well to give it a nice punch of flavor.
  11. Place your cooked pasta in the pot and stir it all up until well incorporated.
