Pasta with Sausage, Red Peppers & Herbs


I use Italian sausage in this recipe, but you can try any of the several different types that are available. Try a sausage you've never had before or replace the sausage with cubed chicken.

Step 1

Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Cook the pasta for 8-10 minutes, or until al dente.

While the pasta is cooking, heat the oil in a small pot. Gently saute the shallots and red bell pepper for 2 minutes. Add the sausage, stock, and tomatoes. Cook until sausage or chicken is cooked through. Add all of the remaining ingredients. Simmer the sauce for 5-6 minutes, or until it thickens.

Drain the pasta and return it to the pot. Pour the sauce over the pasta. Serve immediately.
