Pasta With Roasted Peppers & Sausage

Total Time
Prep 15 mins
Cook 35 mins

This is from the Ronzoni pasta box and it is delicious. Love roasting the vegetables in the oven with the peppers, before adding any tomatoes. I use 6-inch long chicken Italian sausages, and just cut into 1-inch chunks before they go in the oven.

We really enjoyed this for our dinner tonight. I used sweet Italian sausage and taking KateL's recommendation I boiled it first. I started cooking the peppers and onions and boiling the sausage at the same time. After 10 minutes, I stirred the peppers and onions and added the sausage. After 25 minutes (15 min more) I sliced the sausage and I think they would have benefited from a longer boiling time. As I was only serving 4, I made half of the amount of fettuccine. I plated the fettuccine, then topped with the sausage, peppers, and onions. It smelled wonderful while it was cooking and I love the roasting. Oh, and I did cut the olive oil back by a tablespoon. Thanks for sharing! Made for Best of 2013 tag.

Delicious and EASY pasta meal! I used sweet Italian turkey sausage and added a generous sprinkle of crushed red pepper flakes. You can whip this up with minimal effort with staple ingredients, which makes it great for a busy workday. Thanks for sharing the recipe! Made for the Best of 2013 event, recommended by KateL

Fabulous weeknight meal! This takes our usual marinara and sautéed sausage up a notch. DH wants the full flavor, but for WW, I would bake the sausage separately on a drip pan so we wouldn't eat all of the fat. (My Italian friend says her family boils the sausage first.) We used Hot Italian sausage, which added a nice zip without overwhelming. Made for I Recommend tag based on Karen Elizabeth's review.
