Pasta with Sausage and Peppers

Pin It
I whipped this up the other night with no recipe and it turned out so good! I had seen these Chicken with Spinach and Asiago Cheese sausages at Sam's and thought they looked good. They'd been sitting in my freezer for a while and I needed to use them. This recipe would work with any kind of smoked sausage really. You could use turkey sausage, pork kielbasa or Sam's actually had lots of other flavors of chicken sausage. This is an easy, quick, flavorful dinner! I took these pictures with our new camera and love how they turned out!



1 TB olive oil
Approx 1-1.5 lb smoked sausage, sliced (I used 6 links, not sure how much it was exactly)
2 bell peppers, any color (I used red and green)
1 medium onion, sliced
1 lb penne rigate pasta
1 jar prepared alfredo sauce (Newman's Own or Bertolli are my faves)

Start cooking pasta according to package directions and when it's done, drain and set aside. Meanwhile in a large skillet or pot heat olive oil over medium high heat. Add sausage, peppers and onions and saute for about 15 min or until onions are caramalized and peppers are soft. Add alfredo sauce and heat through, scraping up browned bits from bottom of pan. Add pasta and mix well. Serve!

Doesn't this look pretty?

You want it to have some good color on it like this:


  1. This looks really good! I haven't tried it yet, but will let you know when I do.

  2. Tried it it would have been even better with the sausage you used. I tried it with turkey sausage. : )
