Quicker Baked Potato

Try this method for speeding up the potato baking process (for a better texture than those that you microwave). Pre-heat the oven to 400. Place the potato in boiling water for 10 minutes. Bake for 30 minutes. This will cut the cooking time in half.


Penne With Peppers & Sausage

pasta, italian, pork

1 lb sausage, italian, in 2 lengths
2 onions, purple, in 1 inch pieces
5 garlic cloves, crushed
2 peppers, bell, red, in 1 cubes
2 peppers, bell, yellow, in 1 cubes
16 oz tomatoes, italian, plum
3/4 cup wine, red, dry, robust
1 teaspoon worcestershire
2 bay leaves, imported
1/2 teaspoon basil, dried, leaves
1/2 teaspoon thyme, dried, leaves
1/2 teaspoon oregano, dried, leaves
1/2 teaspoon sage, dried, rubbed
1/4 teaspoon chile, dried, hot, red, flakes
1/4 teaspoon pepper, black, freshly ground
3 tablespoon parsley, chopped
1 lb penne

Heat a skillet over moderate heat, add sausage and cook until browned. Remove sausage and drain on paper toweling. Discard all but 1 tablespoons of fat. Add onion to fat in skillet and cook slowly until soft but not browned. Add garlic and cook a minute or two more. Add red and yellow bell peppers and toss to coat with oil. Add tomatoes, wine, Worcestershire and seasonings. Cook at a simmer, covered, stirring occasionally, for about 10 minutes, adding sausage pieces toward the end of that period. Uncover and cook over high heat to reduce to desired consistency. In the meantime, cook penne until al dente in ample boiling salted water. Drain pasta and toss in a heated bowl with a tablespoon or so of good olive oil. Serve pasta in heated bowls with sauce and a sprinkling of parsley.
