Penne Pasta with Sausage and Peppers {Gluten Free}


You know when you see someone in a TV show make something and you can't stop thinking about it? Well I was watching Khloe & Lamar (Oh shhh!) and she made a dish like this for her Father in Law and it was so simple and they loved it. Well I woke up thinking about it and had to find a recipe for it. A friend pointed this to me and of course I added my own little touch. I used gluten free sausage, broth and pasta. The bell peppers and onions were already sliced and ready to cook in a package my store sells for fajitas (Fresh & Easy stores).

Penne Pasta with Sausage and Peppers {Gluten Free}
adapted from allrecipes

1 pound gluten free Italian sausage, cut into 1/2 inch pieces
1 green bell pepper, thinly sliced
1 red bell pepper, thinly sliced
1 yellow bell pepper, thinly sliced
1 yellow onion, thinly sliced
1 tsp. crushed garlic
8 ounces gluten free penne pasta
3/4 cup gluten free beef broth
1/4 tsp ground black pepper
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp red pepper flakes
5 large basil leaves, thinly sliced
1/4 C. parmesan cheese
1/4 C. mozzarella, shredded

Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add pasta and cook for 8 to 10 minutes or until al dente; drain.
While pasta is cooking, cook sausage and onions in large skillet over medium heat until sausage is brown and juices run clear. Set aside sausage mixture and add bell peppers to the pan, sautee for a few minutes until just tender, set aside. Pour in the broth, season with black pepper, garlic and red pepper flakes, return the sausage and onions to the pan and bring to a boil. Turn off heat and add peppers back to the pan. Season with salt and pepper. Toss pasta with sausage sauce, sprinkle in cheeses and basil and serve.

Ha I saw that episode of Khloe and Lamar too and made the same thing like the next day. Glad to find a GF recipe for it!

Made it tonight and it was perfect! I am learning to cook (finally after 20yrs of marriage) and the directions were easy to follow. My husband thanks you!

This recipe was the first time I tried something new and it was exactly what the picture looked like and really was simple. Thank you. Was spicy so would probably cut the red pepper to a qtr tsp.
