Pasta and Sausage


Pasta and Sausage

20 Min

We consider Pasta and Sausage the so-called "meat and potatoes" of an Italian kitchen. Lots of peppers, onions and zippy Italian sausage make this a hearty classic recipe that is perfectly at home on top of your favorite pasta.

What You'll Need

  • 1 pound Italian-style sausage, casings removed
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 1 green bell pepper, chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 (14-1/2-ounce) cans diced tomatoes, undrained
  • 1 (4-ounce) can mushrooms, drained
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 pound rotini, twist, or spiral pasta
  • 1/2 cup (2 ounces) shredded mozzarella cheese

What to Do

  1. In a large skillet, cook sausage, onion, bell pepper, and garlic over medium heat until no pink remains in sausage, stirring to crumble the sausage. Reduce the heat to low and add tomatoes, mushrooms, Italian seasoning, and chili powder; simmer 10 minutes, or until heated through.
  2. Meanwhile, prepare pasta according to package directions; drain, rinse, and drain again. Place on a large serving platter.
  3. Pour sauce over pasta and top with mozzarella cheese. Serve immediately.

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

I am really bad at buying sausages and then they dont get used up and I end up cooing them for the dogs to have as a treat. For this pasta and sausage would it be possible to use any kind sausage or does it flat out have to be Italian style sausage?

Any of your favorite type of sausage will work great! Enjoy!

Will have to try this. Looks good!

This dish looks like something I would like to make.
