Let’s infuse some Italian flair into our metaphorical pitcher with these Tipsy Tuscan Noodles, where the bold flavors of spicy Italian sausage, vibrant peppers, and aromatic herbs dance harmoniously in a tantalizing sauce, ensuring every bite is a celebration of flavor and vitality.


  • 1 lb spicy Italian sausage
  • 1 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp Italian seasoning
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1 red pepper, diced
  • 1 yellow pepper, diced
  • 1 orange pepper, diced
  • 4 cloves garlic, pressed
  • 1/2 cup white wine (such as chardonnay)
  • 1 can diced tomatoes with juice (28 ounces)
  • 2 tbsp parsley, chopped
  • 1/4 cup fresh basil, julienned
  • 8 oz egg noodles


  1. Heat a large, heavy-bottom pan over medium-high heat. Add 2 tablespoons of olive oil. Once hot, crumble the spicy Italian sausage into the pan, allowing it to brown for a few minutes. Remove the browned sausage from the pan and set it aside.
  2. In the same pan, add the diced bell peppers, salt, Italian seasoning, and black pepper. Sauté for about 2 minutes until slightly tender.
  3. Add the pressed garlic to the pan. Once aromatic, pour in the white wine and let it reduce until almost evaporated. Add the diced tomatoes with their juice and return the browned sausage to the pan. Gently simmer for 3-4 minutes to blend the flavors, then turn off the heat.
  4. Drizzle 2-3 tablespoons of olive oil into the sauce for richness. Stir in the chopped parsley and half of the julienned basil. Keep warm while preparing the noodles.
  5. Cook the egg noodles according to package instructions. Drain well and add them directly to the sauce. Use tongs to toss and combine the noodles with the sauce and other ingredients. Adjust seasoning if necessary.
  6. To serve, portion the Tipsy Tuscan Noodles into bowls and garnish with the remaining julienned basil. For an extra flourish, sprinkle with shaved Parmesan and a final drizzle of olive oil.
