Mostacolli & Sauce

My husband said that I couldn't have made him a better dinner to celebrate our 12th anniversary. :)

One of my many versions of Mostacolli and Red Sauce with Sausage

2 lbs of Mostacolli, cooked al dente

3 big cans of tomato sauce
1/2 lb of bulk hot sausage
1 lg. pepper, dice into small pieces
1 medium onion, diced into small pieces
1 pint of baby bella mushrooms, chopped
3 tsp. of minced garlic
2 tsp of red pepper flakes
2 TBSP Italian seaosonings
olive oil

In a large frying pan, saute diced pepper, onions and mushrooms in olive oil. Set aside.

To the same pan, add hot sausage and cook until no longer pink. Add garlic and heat through for 1 minute.

Add the pepper, onions and mushrooms back into the pan. Pour in tomato sauce. Add garlic, red pepper flakes and Italian seasoning. Cook over medium heat for 15 minutes, and then reduce heat to low and continue cooking for 2 hrs. If the sauce becomes too thick for your liking, add a bit of water or chicken stock to it.

Ladle sauce onto warm pasta and top with shredded Mozzarella cheese.
