1/2 pound Italian sausage, casings removed
1 cup pizza sauce
3 tablespoons fresh basil, chopped and divided
2 teaspoons garlic powder
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1-1/2 cups shredded pizza cheese


1. Preheat oven to 325℉.

2. In a large frying pan, add olive oil and place over medium heat. Add onions and sauté about 3 minutes. Add peppers and continue to sauté another 10 minutes or until vegetables are soft but not browned. Remove onions and peppers from the pan and set aside.

3. Place sausage into the same frying pan and cook until browned and cooked through, about 6 minutes. Drain, then return the onions and green peppers to the pan with the sausage.

4. Add pizza sauce, 2 tablespoons of the basil, garlic powder and the oregano. Stir and continue cooking another 3-4 minutes.

5. Assemble taco shells in a 13 x 9 inch baking pan; Place a little bit of cheese in the bottom of each shell. Spoon sausage- pizza mixture into each shell. Top the tacos with the rest of the cheese and bake for 7 minutes. Top with remaining tablespoon of basil and serve.

An Italian-based band would be more than perfect for this post, but I couldn’t resist getting this new tune out to youse. (Haha! A little bit of old school B’klyn I-taliano.)

‘Elysian’ is a nice bit of chill to get you in the mood for dinner (or re-entry to the States after an AWESOME trip to Scotland. Whatever? Right?)


Check out Northern American on the band’s Website and Facebook, where you can learn of upcoming US tour dates. You can buy the first track from their debut upcoming album ‘Modern Phenomena’ on Bandcamp.
