My husband and I loved this recipe. We used fettuccini instead of the Pappardelli, which was really good. Have been passing this recipe along.

We LOVED this! I'd actually found this exact recipe on two sites, and slight variations on two others. Next time I'll take a picture and post - with all the peppers, basil, parsley and Parmesan garnish - it's a beautiful and colorful dish.<br/>--On the other site, it mentioned you could substitute egg noodles since Pappardelle noodles are hard to find. Instead of 8 oz, I used a 12 oz package. <br/>--Also, I was afraid I and my youngest child wouldn't like the spicy sausage, so I used regular sausage (not "sweet", not ?breakfast?). <br/>--I didn't measure a 1/4 cup of of Basil; I used an entire 2 oz package, which looked about the same. <br/>--Other than those adjustments, I followed the recipe exactly. <br/>--I live at a high altitude, so cooking pasta always takes me longer than the package says. I don't know why, but this dish took me about 55 minutes from start to finish. I'll start the noodles sooner next time; I think I can get it down to 45 minutes.<br/>--We eat large portion sizes (3 of us had seconds!), so for us, it served 5.<br/><br/>My youngest likes sausage, but didn't like this sausage, nor does she like peppers. So she basically ate the tomato sauce with the noodles. But my spouse, oldest and I all LOVED this. We?ll be adding this to my menu rotation!

This dish is SO GOOD ! The sauce has depth and the flavors linger on your palate.<br/>I especially liked that the pasta/sausage ratio was far less than the veggies. Loads of color on the plate. Will definitely make again and again.<br/>Makes sure to top with additional fresh basil and shaved Parmesan !

I've been seeing this all over Pinterest for months and found it here. Glad it was posted!! This took a little over an hour to make, but it was good!! The fresh basil on top when served was key, as was some Parmesan.
