End of the Garden Pasta

My garden is finally finished. I wanted to use the few tomatoes we had left, and my neighbor gave me some beautiful peppers. We love Italian sausage sandwiches, but that just didn’t sound that good – but I also love pasta! And this is what we had for dinner!

Farm to table, or in this case, garden to table, offers deliciously fresh food that is seasonally available. Here’s one for that end of summer garden.

Here’s How to Do it:

Prep the vegetables. Slice the bell peppers, chop the onions and cut the tomatoes into large chunks. Get the pasta started cooking.

Heat a heavy skillet and brown the sausage.

Add the peppers, garlic and onions and simmer until they are starting to soften.
