Super simple, just a few ingredients and a real FAVORITE at our house!! Quick and great for guests. Easy to make in bulk for a large crowd. This dish is good if you have vegetarians/vegans and meat-eaters sharing a meal.
ITALIAN SAUSAGE AND ROASTED RED PEPPER PASTA
8 oz dried large bow-tie pasta, cook according to directions
olive oil for browning sausages4 links Vegan Italian sausage links
1 large jar roasted red sweet peppers, drained
½ c veggie broth
¼ t ground black pepper
¼ c fresh parsley
Cut sausages into 1 inch pieces. Cut sweet peppers into 1/2 inch pieces. In a large fry pan, cook sausage and sweet peppers in olive oil over medium-high heat until sausage is brown. Drain well. Add the broth and black pepper to the meat and peppers. Bring to a boil. Cook 5 minutes (a slight reduction). Remove from heat and pour over cooked pasta. Add parsley and toss gently.
Note: I have made this with fresh red peppers, too, and it is very good. But I prefer the flavor of the roasted peppers.
