What Is Pappardelle?
Pappardelle pasta is a type of Italian noodle that’s long, wide, and flat. It looks like a wider version of fettuccine and is usually egg-based. It can have ruffled edges too for a nice visual effect. The name comes from “pappare,” which means “to devour” in Italian. It makes a lot of sense, huh?
Heat a large pan and cook the sausage until browned. Remove it from the pan and set it aside.
Add the sliced onion to the same pan. Sauté until slightly caramelized.
Toss in the mini bell peppers and cook them until softened.
Pour in the crushed tomatoes and mix well. Let the sauce simmer for 8-10 minutes.
Bring a pot of water to a boil. Add in the pappardelle and cook until al dente.
Drain the pasta. Slice the browned sausage and add it to the sauce.
Gently toss the pasta and sauce until well combined. Garnish the pasta with fresh basil or parmesan cheese. Serve immediately and enjoy.
