Pasta with Sausage and Red Peppers
  • 1 Box of bow tie pasta
  • 1 package chicken sausage (Use your favorite flavor--mine is jalapeno), sliced about a ¼- to ½-inch thick)
  • 1 red bell pepper (diced into larger pieces)
  • 1 yellow bell pepper (diced into larger pieces)
  • 1 medium onion (diced into larger pieces)
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • ½ cup of chicken broth
  • 2-3 cups fresh spinach
  • Grated Parmesan to garnish
  1. Boil pasta according to package directions
  2. While it's boiling, sauté peppers, onions, and garlic in a tablespoon of oil (I use grapeseed, but Canola would work fine) for 3-4 minutes on one side of a large skillet.
  3. On the other side of the skillet, brown sausage.
  4. Once it starts browning, mix everything together.
  5. You'll notice that carmalization will be taking place on the bottom of your skillet. Little pieces of sausage and vegetables will start sticking just a bit as it browns. This is the good stuff!
  6. Add spinach at this point, and pour in broth.
  7. Stir everything around, scraping up the brown bits off the bottom, until the spinach starts to wilt.
  8. When spinach is wilted, add drained pasta.
  9. Serve with a liberal dousing of Parmesan cheese.
