How It’s Made

This incredible sausage and pepper pasta recipe starts with the oven-roasted sweet bell peppers. Getting some color on the peppers really adds a great deal of flavor and even more smokiness to the recipe. Next, it’s the sausage! I recommend going to with a smoky variety such as a good quality kielbasa. Once the sausage is well-browned, the marsala wine sauce starts to come together. Just add the wine, tomato sauce, seasonings, sausage and pepper and you’re all set! I like to finish off the dish with heavy cream and parmesan cheese for extra creaminess!

Cooking wines are great for everyday meals! I’ve been using Holland House cooking wines since I started cooking. My mom always had this cooking wine in her pantry and now I love to use it in my kitchen, too. I love adding Marsala wine to my pasta dishes, chili and cold-weather stews. Try adding a few tablespoons of Marsala cooking wine to your stroganoff for an amazing boost of flavor! Explore all 5 flavors that Holland House has to offer on their website and Facebook page.
