Bring a pot of water to a boil.
Coat a medium pan with oil and heat over medium-low heat. Add the garlic and saute until golden brown, then remove and discard. Increase the heat to medium-high, and squeeze the sausages from their casings
into the oil. Break up the sausages
into roughly 1/2-inch pieces with a spatula
and cook until browned, scraping up any smaller bits from the bottom of the pan.
While the sausage cooks, add a large handful of salt to the boiling water, then add the pasta and cook until al dente
. Reserve 1/4 cup of the cooking water before straining the pasta
Add the red and yellow bell peppers
to the sausage and cook until the peppers are cooked through, about 5 minutes. Remove the pan from the heat, add the reserved cooking water, the cheese
, butter and some pepper, then toss well. Scoop the pasta into serving bowls and top with torn basil
leaves and a little more cheese. Enjoy.
