  • 450 gr pork sausage
  • A red bell pepper, cut into cubes
  • A green bell pepper, cut into cubes
  • 200 gr elbow macaroni (dried)
  • 500 gr marinara sauce
  • 500 ml water
  • 120 gr half and half cream
  • 120 gr mozzarella cheese


1To start making this dish, you need to prepare a large skillet. Then, heat it over medium heat and place the pork sausage on top of it. Cook the sausage for several minutes until the color of the meat turns brown. Also, make sure that all side of the sausage is completely cooked as well.

2After finished cooking the sausage, you may turn the heat off and don’t forget to drain the excess fat. When it is done, you may set it aside for a while and continue to prepare for other remaining ingredients. Simply do the following step written below.

3Cut all of the peppers and add them to the skillet of sausage along with other remaining ingredients, like elbow macaroni, water, and marinara sauce. Stir and cook these ingredients well until they are completely cooked and well combined.

4Make sure you cook the mixture until it gets boiled, then lower the heat to simmer. When it simmers, cover the skillet using a lid and let it cook for additional 20 minutes until the macaroni gets tender. Here, you also need to stir the mixture occasionally.

5When it reaches 20 minutes, you may add the other ingredients in it, like the half and half cream and the mozzarella cheese. Stir to combine the ingredients until they are completely mixed. Next, you may turn the heat off and cover to let it sit for a couple of minutes until the cheese gets completely melted.
