Hearty Pasta Dish….In Summer….In The South

I forget where I came across this recipe.  Being the smartest person ever, I decided to make a hearty pasta dish in the middle of summer in the south 😐  One thing before I start, you must love peppers to enjoy this dish


Cooking the sausage

Cooking the onions

Have I ever shown you the easiest way to cut up a bell pepper?  I never use any other method now.  Instead of cutting off the top, cut vertically, like this

Continue around the pepper and you end up with slices like these.  No cleaning needed!

Another tip?  Cut with the skin side down.  That way, if the skin is a little tough, you won’t smush the pepper flesh.  Enough about the peppers…..well almost.  Peppers in the pot!

All ingredients in

Everything mixed up with the pasta


Don’t forget to pour yourself a glass of wine when the recipe tells you to add it.

I was kind of wary about it, but I liked the dish.  I think the only thing I would change would be the peppers.  I think they need to be in a smaller size.  I would just cut them in half again to make them shorter.  The sauce is great.  I might try and use dried herbs.  I might use half hot sausage to give it a bit of a kick.  Other than that, wouldn’t change a thing 🙂  I got 5 REALLY big servings out of it – even though the recipe says it makes four.  I don’t know if you could substitute the pasta, but it is hard to find.  I was able to find it at Earth Fare, but whoooo – it was expensive.  Maybe I will just try and make it from scratch next time.
