Today I have a new take on pasta night! I was pleasantly surprised when I made this the first time that it was a hit with everyone, the kids even had seconds! Every mom’s meal planning dream come true, haha! It takes one pot, 7 ingredients, and less than 30 minutes to get this roasted red pepper and sausage pasta to the table! My kids always rave when I serve it with homemade bread.
I use the dutch oven my husband bought me for Christmas, but a large pot will work great too. Start by browning the sausage in a little olive oil. While the sausage is cooking, chop some spinach (kale works great too!) and puree your roasted red peppers. Add both to the pot when sausage is cooked through. Pour in liquids and bring to a soft boil, then add noodles. Cover and cook until noodles are done to your preference. Garnish with parmesan, serve with salad and/or bread, done!
