Salsiccia Pasta

I recently ordered Salsiccia at the Riverside Restaurant in Hood River, Oregon. It was really good, and I decided that I would try to make it at home. I searched the Internet and came up with a recipe that was rated at a "Beginner" level . Using a photo of the restaurant menu to double-check the ingredients, I made a few edits and came up with this recipe which is easy and crazy good. Ingredients 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil 1/2 medium yellow onion or 1 shallot, diced 1 cup sweet peppers (chopped) kosher salt and Freshly ground black pepper 1 pound fresh (uncooked) Italian-style turkey or pork sausage, ground (not links) 1/3 cup dry red wine 4 garlic cloves minced 1 tsp dried rosemary  1 pinch crushed red pepper flakes (optional) 24 ounces can crushed or pureed tomatoes 12 ounces fusilli pasta 2 tablespoons unsalted butter Ricotta Salata or Pecorino cheese or parmesan or smoked Ricotta Salata or smoked Mozzarella or Scamorza, finely grated Shredde
