Olives, garlic, fire roasted tomatoes, capers and olive oil simmer down into a beautiful sauce served over pasta and sausage.
  • 1 pound of hot Italian sausage
  • ½ cup of olives ( I torn them a bit with my fingers to spread evenly throughout the sauce)
  • 2 tbsp of capers
  • 1 tsp of crushed red pepper
  • 2 tsp of chopped garlic
  • ¼ cup of olive oil
  • 1 large can of whole tomatoes ( I like fire roasted)
  • 2 tbsp of Italian seasoning
  • salt and pepper
  • 2 cups of prepared pasta
  • bread and Parm for serving
  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Drizzle a pan with a little olive oil and place sausage links evenly.
  3. Bake for 25-30 minutes until the casing is nice and crispy
  4. In a sauce pan heat olive oil over medium heat.
  5. Add in the olives, garlic and capers.
  6. Stir constantly so you don't burn the garlic.
  7. Lower the heat and add the tomatoes.
  8. Add the red pepper and Italian seasoning.
  9. Salt and pepper to taste.
  10. Simmer for 20 minutes.
  11. Add in the sausage links.

  13. (If the sauce gets too thick add a little pasta water.)
  14. Serve over pasta with lots and lots of Parm!
