White Brick Wall

To create this Sausage and Peppers Pasta, gather the following key ingredients:

  • 8 ounces of your favorite pasta (penne or rigatoni work well)

  • 1 pound Italian sausage, removed from the casing and crumbled

  • 2 yellow bell peppers

  • 1/2 cup white wine

  • 1/2 onion, chopped

  • 1 cup heavy cream

  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese

  • 2 cloves garlic, minced

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

  • Salt and pepper to taste

  • Fresh basil leaves for garnish

Sausage and Peppers Pasta Ingredients:

Cook the Pasta: Start by cooking the pasta according to the package instructions until it's al dente. Drain and set aside.

Prepare the Sausage: While the pasta is cooking, heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add olive oil and crumbled Italian sausage. Cook the sausage, breaking it apart with a spatula, until it's browned and cooked through. Remove the cooked sausage from the skillet and set it aside.

Create the Roasted Pepper Sauce: In the same skillet, add chopped onions and minced garlic. Sauté until the onions are translucent. Add the yellow bell peppers and continue to cook until they are soft and slightly caramelized. Pour in the white wine and let it simmer until it's reduced by half.

Blend the Sauce: Transfer the cooked yellow peppers, onions, and wine reduction to a blender. Blend until smooth, creating a creamy roasted yellow pepper sauce.

Finish the Creamy Sauce: Return the blended sauce to the skillet. Pour in the heavy cream and grated Parmesan cheese, stirring continuously until the sauce thickens and the cheese is fully melted. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

Combine Everything: Add the cooked pasta and crumbled sausage back to the skillet with the creamy roasted yellow pepper sauce. Toss everything together until the pasta is well coated with the sauce.

Serve: Transfer the Sausage and Peppers Pasta to serving plates, garnish with fresh basil leaves, and if desired, sprinkle with extra Parmesan cheese for an added touch of decadence.
