Roasted Red Pepper Rigatoni



Why hello there chef! I have a confession to make. If I had to live off of one type of food for the rest of my life it would, hands down, be pasta! I LOVE pasta! I literally gained 10 pounds in 2 weeks in Italy. True Story....sad but true. Today I picked my very first yellow summer squash out of my very own garden! Success! I was so excited I just had to make something amazing out of my perfect little squash. Everyone, including my two incredibly picky children gobbled this up!

Ok we're gonna start off with: My perfectly perfect summer squash, fresh mushrooms, onion, yellow pepper, mild Italian Sausage, 2 jars of roasted red peppers, cream and rigatoni!


First step, brown your sausage and drain...saving the oil in the pan for later. Next, chop your squash, yellow pepper, onions and mushrooms into bite size pieces. Sautee in the oil left over from the sausage until soft and tender.

Let me tell ya, this smells SO good!


Meanwhile, drain your roasted red pepper and throw them in your blender. Puree until totally smooth.

When your veggies are done, transfer them to a plate or bowl. Pour red pepper sauce into pan and cook over medium heat. To the roasted red pepper sauce, add 1 1/2 cups of cream, some garlic and plenty of salt! Cook until it is hot. That's it! Easiest sauce ever!
Cook your pasta al dente and combine vegetables, sausage and sauce! Top with parmesan cheese.

Bon Appetito!
