This is a very tasty and quick pasta meal. I got the recipe years ago when I was still at school and went home with one of my friends to have dinner at her house. Her family traveled to Tuscany every year and this was their version of a pasta dish they had eaten there. Serve with a side salad and some crusty bread. You can use any type of pasta really if you haven't got penne pasta, it's really nice with tortellini as well.
This is not yo' mamma's sausage and peppers! This is a non-tomato based dish...very light tasting and an absolute favorite at my house. The smell of the roasting peppers, sausage and garlic gets the neighbors knocking on the door asking what's for dinner!!!
A few weeks ago there was a post on the message boards asking "Of all of your creations, what recipe are you the most proud of?" I want to change my answer to this one!! I had a moment of brillance last night when I started dinner and this recipe is the end result. I really enjoyed eating this and felt like I had created a very simple but extremely tasty dinner. I hope whomever decides to try it enjoys it as much as we did!!
Loved this recipe I found in "Quick Cooking". I reduced the amount of olive oil in the original recipe, and this turned out to be quick weeknight meal for the family. I served this with broccoli and bread.
I adopted this recipe in Aug. 2006 & will add input whenever I prepare it. It originally was posted Dec 11, 2002. Original comments: "The best vodka sauce I've ever had. Restaurants wish they had this recipe. Really, it's true."
