I have made this several times for guest’s of mine, and they have all loved it. It’s a great Italian dish that doesn’t require a lot of work.

Recipe Ingredients

  • 1 (16 ounce) package farfalle (bow tie) pasta
  • 1 pound mild Italian sausage links
  • ⅓ cup water
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • ½ large onion, sliced
  • 1 medium green bell pepper, sliced
  • 1 medium red bell pepper, sliced
  • 1 tablespoon Marsala wine
  • 1 (14.5 ounce) can Italian-style diced tomatoes, undrained
  • 1 pinch dried oregano
  • 1 pinch black pepper

Cooking Directions

  1. 1 Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook pasta for 8 to 10 minutes, or until al dente; drain.

  1. This was a great meal. I did add more garlic and a lot more marsala to give it a little sauce to coat the pasta. I wanted it a little more sweet so I did add a little touch of sugar. Instead of slicing the italian sausage I removed the casings and crumbled instead. This - Read more ...
  2. It was really good! I did use more Marsala sauce as suggested and 1/4 cup of spaghetti sauce..and of course more garlic..
  3. This dish was very good however there really was no sauce. I suggest reducing the pasta to 1/2 lb or doubling the tomatoes. I added more marsala wine than the recipe called for and it gave the sausage a great flavor. My 15 month old and husband loved it. Unfortunately my 3-1/2 year old didn't - Read more ...
  4. I've made this several times and it is delicious. I've made a few changes. I use sweet italian turkey sausage and take it out of the casing and brown it with the other veggies. I also add more Marsala wine. Probably 1/4 to 1/2 cup depending on your taste. (What's the use of cooking with - Read more ...
  5. This was a big hit in my house. I read other suggestions and added more Marsala wine frozen peppers and onions but also used 2 cans of chopped tomatoes. Will make again but next time I'll spice it up a little more.
  6. This was great. The only difference was that I used 1 tablespoon of cabernet wine instead of the marsala (since I didn't have it on hand), and my husband raved over it. He said the smell was driving him crazy. I also used penne pasta instead of farfalle, but I will DEFINITELY make this again. - Read more ...
  7. This was excellent. Very delicious.
  8. Not bad but the timing and amounts require a few adjustments to make this dish really good. The tomatoes should be added before the sausage as cooked through...this way the flavour of the sausage will permeate the sauce while cooking through. The addition of only one tbsp of Marsala wine which pairs beautifully with lots - Read more ...
  9. This is addictive. My husband ate all of it in a day. I will make variations on my noodles next time.
