Nancy's Chicken, Pepperoni & Sausage Cacciatore

When you are laying in bed near midnight and hear the door alarm chime, the back door open and the sound of one of your sons returning home from work, then you hear the sound of the fridge door opening, rattling around the kitchen, the microwave door opening, shutting, opening again and then silverware clanging around, lips smacking and a statement to oneself saying "mmmmm, this is bomb", you know it must really must be, 'the bomb'.

 I sometimes have serious pasta cravings and recently conjured up a Chicken Cacciatore dish but with the addition of pepperoni and Italian sausage.   Cacciatore, (translated means hunter) is a rustic Italian dish, a wonderful comfort food consisting of chicken and vegetables in a red sauce, and sometimes made with wine.

My Cacciatore gets a little kick with pepperoni,  Italian sausage and sweet bell peppers in addition to most of the usual ingredients found in Chicken Cacciatore.  We actually call it it "Kind of Cacciatore" 
I hope…
