Red and yellow pepper pasta with sausage

Red and yellow pepper pasta with sausage

The recipe calls for 1 1/2 lb pasta but that seemed like too much so we reduced pasta to 1 lb and upped sausage to 6 links. Kids like the sausages best. 545 calories.

  • Yield: 1 serving


  • 1 Red bell pepper
  • 2 Yellow peppers
  • 1/4 cup(s) Extra virgin olive oil
  • 4 Sweet Italian sausages Sliced in 1/2 inch pieces
  • 1/4 teaspoon(s) Salt
  • Freshly ground pepper

  • 1 pound(s) Parpadekke or rigatoni Cooked
  • 2/3 cup(s) Parmesan cheese Grated
  • 2 tablespoon(s) Onion Chopped


Split peppers in 4 sections and discard seeds and cores. Peel sections with vegetable peeler if desired. Cut into 1 inch pieces and set aside.

Put olive oil and onion in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook, stirring until onion turns pale gold, about 5 minutes. Add sausages; ( i use a whole packeafe of itaslian sausage from costco) cook 2 to 3 minutes. Add peppers; turning occasionally, 7 minutes. Add salt and pepper to taste stir well.
