  • 2 links Capital Hot Italian Sausage

  • 5 tbsp Olive Oil

  • 1 whole Sweet Red Bell Pepper

  • 2 small Shallots

  • 1 head Garlic

  • 2/3 lb Capellini Pasta

  • 2 tsp Coarse Sea Salt

  • 1/2 whole Beefsteak Tomato

  • To Taste, Italian Parsley

  • To Taste, Parmigiano-Reggiano Cheese


  • Set a pot of water to boil with salt added.
  • Add olive to a medium-high heat pan, and brown two Capital Italian Sausage links on all sides.
  • Remove the sausage when browned and easy to slice, then slice into medallions once cool enough to handle.
  • Saute some sliced sweet red bell pepper in the olive oil and Italian Sausage juices. After a few minutes, add in finely chopped garlic, and shallot. Saute until fragrant.
  • Return the Capital Italian Sausage to the pan and sear with the veggies until fully cooked.
  • Add 2/3rd pack of Capellini pasta to the pot of boiling water.
  • Add fresh diced tomato to the pan with the sausage and veggies, and let the tomato soften.
  • When the pasta is cooked, remove it from the pot and add it to the pan of sausage and veggies directly. Mix to combine and add in a splash or two of pasta water as necessary to make sure the dish is not dry.
  • Top with parmigiano-reggiano cheese and serve.
