– 8 ounces spaghetti or fettuccine noodles

– 2 tablespoons olive oil

– 4 cloves garlic, minced

– 1 small onion, thinly sliced

– 1 bell pepper, thinly sliced

– 8 ounces Italian sausage, casings removed

– 1/2 cup dry white wine

– 1 can (14.5 ounces) diced tomatoes, drained

– 1/4 cup chopped fresh basil leaves

– 1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley leaves

– Salt and pepper, to taste

– Grated Parmesan cheese, for serving


1. Cook the noodles: Cook the spaghetti or fettuccine noodles according to the package instructions until al dente. Drain and set aside.

2. Prepare the sauce: In a large skillet, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the minced garlic and sauté for about 1 minute until fragrant. Add the sliced onion and bell pepper, and cook for another 2-3 minutes until they start to soften.

3. Cook the sausage: Add the Italian sausage to the skillet, breaking it up with a spoon. Cook until the sausage is browned and cooked through, about 5-6 minutes.

4. Deglaze with wine: Pour the dry white wine into the skillet, scraping up any browned bits from the bottom of the pan. Let it simmer for 2-3 minutes until the wine reduces slightly.

5. Add tomatoes and herbs: Stir in the diced tomatoes, chopped basil, and chopped parsley. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Let the sauce simmer for another 5 minutes to allow the flavors to meld together.

6. Combine with noodles: Add the cooked noodles to the skillet with the sauce. Toss everything together until the noodles are well coated with the sauce and heated through.

7. Serve: Transfer the Italian Drunken Noodles to serving plates. Sprinkle with grated Parmesan cheese on top. Serve hot and enjoy!

Feel free to adjust the ingredients and seasonings to suit your taste preferences. This dish pairs perfectly with a glass of the same white wine you used in the sauce.

Buon appetito!
