This tomatoey pappardelle Pasta is a classic Italian comfort food full of juicy sausage, sweet peppers, and lots of parmesan cheese.


  • 1 lb. Pappardelle Pasta
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 5 italian sausages
  • 1 red onion, sliced
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 1012 mini sweet bell peppers, sliced
  • 28 oz. Muir Glen crushed fire-roasted tomatoes
  • salt & pepper to season
  • optional garnish: 1/4 cup basil, chiffon for garnish or shaved parmesan


  1. Heat a large skillet to medium-high heat.
  2. Add in olive oil and Italian sausage, and cook for 3-4 minutes on each side of the Italian sausage. You will want it to be browned on all four sides. Remove from the pan and let cool.
  3. Into the same pan, immediately add red onions. Stir and sauté for 4-5 minutes until slightly caramelized.
  4. Add in garlic and mini bell peppers, and sauté for 2-3 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.
  5. Add in crushed tomatoes, stir, and let simmer for 8-10 minutes.
  6. In the meantime bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add in pappardelle pasta and cook until al dente, about 11-13 minutes.
  7. Drain pasta and place in a large bowl.
  8. Slice Italian sausage and place in pepper tomato sauce, stir everything together.
  9. Pour the sauce over the pasta and gently toss the sauce and pasta together so everything is coated.
  10. Garnish with fresh basil or shaved parmesan cheese.
  11. Serve!
