Quick Pasta

2 tablespoons olive oil
3 Sweet Italian Sausages, 1/2" sliced.
3 Hot Italian Sausages, 1/2" sliced.
1 large onion, coarsely chopped
1-2 large green or red bell pepper, coarsely chopped
Salt/pepper to taste
4 ripe plum tomatoes, chopped OR 1 can chopped tomatoes (I use contadina)
pinch crushed red pepper
1/2-1 cup red wine
Fresh Italian Herbs (Basil, oregano, rosemary, sage, parsley, etc.) OR 1 tsp dried italian herbs
1 lb semolina pasta

Heat the oil in a 10" saute pan and cook the sausage until browned. Remove sausage and cook the onions and peppers in sausage drippings until tender, about 5-10 minutes. Add salt and pepper to taste (about 1 tsp each). Add tomatoes, sausage and crushed red pepper to taste. Heat to a boil. Add red wine and return to boil. Cook on medium heat for about 3-5 minutes. Add fresh herbs and cook a few minutes more.

Serve over any pasta you like.
