This is a recipe I came up with to surprise my husband. His favorite foods are all in here! If I have fresh mushrooms on hand, I will slice and saute them into the dish as well.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Drizzle sliced peppers with 2 tablespoons olive oil.
  2. In a 450° oven, roast red peppers for 30 to 45 minutes, turning occasionally until charred slightly.
  3. Cook whole sausages until no longer pink (you may fry in a pan or grill them, whichever you prefer).
  4. Allow sausage to cool slightly, then slice.
  5. In a large skillet, sauté minced garlic, shallot in remaining olive oil.
  6. Add parsley, thyme, bouillon cube, Italian Seasoning, and wine.
  7. Once the bouillon cube has dissolved, add shrimp.
  8. Continue cooking until shrimp are pink and wine has reduced a bit.
  9. Add peppers and sausage; stir to heat through.
  10. Swirl in the butter.
  11. Season to taste for salt and pepper.
  12. Serve over linguini, giving a toss to incorporate sauce throughout.
  13. Sprinkle with cheese.

This definitely went beyong all expectations. The only problem I had was, the roasting time stated was too long in my oven. I tossed the peppers after 15 minutes and then checked on them again right at 30 minutes, but by that point quite of few of the peppers had burnt. My suggestion would just be to check on the peppers at 20 or 25 minutes. I served this with whole wheat pasta which was an absolutely outstanding complimentary flavor. Everyone absolutely loved this. You have a winner here, Paula! Thank you!

Surprisingly delicious! I was a little sceptical, due to the lack of pasta coating saucy ingredients in this recipe, but this was anything but bland. My family loved it! Including two 6 year old boys. My son said that if he had 10 thumbs, he would give it 10 thumbs up. Lol. I didn't have fresh peppers on hand, so I subbed for the jarred roasted kind. Also, instead of Pinot Grigio, I used 3/4 cup cooking wine (sherry) and 1/4 cup of water since its quite potent. I also added some chopped fresh baby spinach in the last minute of the pasta boiling. I will definitely be making this again! Thanks for posting. :)

This was rich and delicious! I didn't have enough red peppers, so I supplemented eggplant cut into strips - just roasted it right along with the peppers. I also didn't have quite enough fresh parsley, so I added some fresh basil. Layers of flavors going on and the shrimp and sausage went so well together. Served with some crusty sunflower bread. This is a winner!!
