So this is my favorite Italian dish. I would take this any time over anything with red sauce. I could get this whenever I wanted when I lived in NJ, but now that I'm in PA, it's not so easy. So this is what I came up with as a replacement. I'm not sure how authentic it is, but it's good!

  • In a separate pan, or indoor grill, fry the Italian sausage links until cooked through. Cut into 1/4 inch slices.

  • Place potatoes into a saucepan with enough water to cover. Bring to a boil, and cook until fork tender, but not mushy, about 15 minutes. Drain and set aside.

  • Heat the skillet from cooking the chicken over medium heat. Add more oil if necessary. Saute onion and bell pepper until soft. Stir in garlic, and cook for about 1 minute. Pour in the whole jar of jalapenos, and the wine. Scrape any bits of food from the bottom of the pan, and bring to a simmer. Return the chicken to the pan, and add the sliced sausage and potatoes. Simmer for 5 minutes.

  • Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add pasta, and cook for 8 to 10 minutes, or until tender. Drain.

  • Mix cornstarch with a small amount of water, and stir into the skillet with the sauce. Cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until thick enough to coat the pasta. Serve sauce over pasta with freshly grated Parmesan cheese.

I just finished making this dish and I have to say that I am disapointed. It lacked so much flavor I had to totally doctor it up with salt pepper garlic & onion powder along w/paprika. I also had to add a full cup of wine as well. No cornstarch needed since it was thick enough too thick in fact that I had to add almost a whole can of chicken broth. I didn't had the spice since my 5yr old will be eating it so not sure if that had anything to do w/the end result. It made an awful lot so we'll have to make due. Wish I wouldn't have wasted my ingredients or the 2 hrs it took to complete the dish. Won't be making this again. Read More

Yes this is my recipe but I just wanted to say/change one thing. I'm not sure if I submitted it this way or if it was changed but I don't use green pepper in this dish. I always use a red/yellow/orange pepper because it needs the sweetness to balance out the hotness from the sausage and jalapenos. Plus green peppers make me burp! Also the way this is written you should be able to get 6-8 servings out of this easily. Enjoy!!! Read More

My whole family loved this recipe! One problem...the recipe calls for a 12 oz. jar of jalapeno peppers. Talk about a 3-alarm fire!! Wayyyy too much peppers...a 1/4 of a jar will do just fine. Also I used turkey sausage to cut the fat. Enjoy! Read More

I LOVED this dish!! I made a few changes (no peppers or jalapenos used tomatoes instead and added some italian seasoning skipped the cornstarch part because my sauce was thick enough already) I wasn't a fan of the italian sausage we got so I ate mine without - still fantastic! Beware however - this is not a "fix it & forget it" recipe - you're basically working on it right up until it's ready. If you're making it for company I'd make the sauce a little while ahead and let it simmer or pan-cook it to reheat and make the pasta right before serving. Excellent!!! Read More

Although I changed the recipe a bit the recipe was loved by all family members! I omitted the jalapenos green peppers and used sundried tomato sausage in place of the hot Italian. Wow! Easy dish to modify and a GREAT starting point to a meal. Read More

I had leftover roast chicken and BBQ'd Italian sausage so I decided to use this recipe. I sauteed the onion and garlic like the recipes says then I added 2 garden fresh tomatoes the white wine and my leftover chicken sausage and the boiled potatoes. I added some chicken broth as well. I didn't have any peppers but I added a few red pepper flakes for flavour. I also omitted the cornstarch. The recipe turned out great and my husband and 3 kids all liked it (which is not easy to accomplish!!). This was a great way to use my leftovers and I will definitely keep this one in my recipe box.

Holy smoke! WAAAAAAY to much jalapenos on top of hot sausage. I only added 6 oz jalapenos and it just about killed me. And I LIKE spicy food. Other than that it was so-so. Don't think I'll make it again. Read More
