Quick and easy meal and very satisfying. The Asiago garlic bread is a nice accompaniment with this pasta,great for slopping up all of the sauce! Yum!

How to Make Rigatoni with Sweet Italian Sausages and Peppers


  1. Use half of the olive oil to coat the sausage links and either fry them or bake them in the oven at 350 for thirty minutes. Using a large skillet,use the remainder of the olive oil to sauté the garlic,onions,peppers and spices. Add the Italian tomatoes and simmer for ten to fifteen minutes stirring occasionally. Note: reserve some of the parsley for garnish,about a tablespoon or so.
  2. In the mean time cook the pasta according to directions,I make mine el dente as the liquids from the sauce will soften it more. Split the bread length wise in half,butter generously,top with the Asiago cheese and broil until golden brown,sprinkle with parsley and cut into pieces on the bias.(at an angle).
  3. Mix everything together well,place in an appropriate serving dish,garnish with the cheese and a little fresh parsley and serve with the Asiago Garlic Bread. Enjoy this with a nice Chianti wine,delicious! :)
