Italian Chicken Sausage with Red Bell Peppers

Today I made sweet Italian Chicken Sausage, a recipe that I teach in one of our classes,  and everyone that tried it loved it.

This sausage would be delicious cooked any way, but here's two delicious ways you can try yourself.

I gave some to my neighbor, who cooked it as you would most any sausage link and made a sandwich on a bun with some mayo.  It sounded delicious to me and he said "best ever".

I cooked ours in a skillet, starting with about 1/4 inch of water. I turned the heat to medium high, covered the skillet for about 2 minutes.  This helped "steam" the sausage and  make the casing tender.  After we took the cover off we continued cooking on  medium high, letting the water evaporate and turning the sausage as it began to brown.  I like to keep it a nice and even brown color on both sides while making sure that the internal temperature reaches 165° .

While the sausage was cooking I boiled some pasta and heated up some pasta sauce. Once the spaghetti was done and the sauce was warm, I removed the sausage from the skillet and sliced it on the bias.

I mixed the pasta, sauce, and sliced sausage, and topped it with some Parmesan cheese and fresh parsley. And it was amazing.
