This recipe came about after I sampled some roasted garlic smoked sausage at Costco.  They must have sold a ton of it that day because the checker commented how good it must be because everyone was buying it.

I first cut up a few links and browned them to serve with scrambled eggs……SO GOOD!!

That’s when I knew I had to use it with pasta, and the perfect time to try a roasted red pepper sauce I had heard about!!

While White Bean Chicken ChiliFlank Steak Sliders and Three Cheese Baked Mostaccioli remain in my all-time favorite recipes, this Roasted Red Pepper Fettuccine with Garlic Smoked Sausage is definitely a front-runner.  It not only gets extra points for how fast it’s on the table, but it’s also restaurant quality dish you can totally serve company!!

Serve with a loaf of garlic cheese bread, Pasta House Co. Copycat Salad, and Tiramisu Cookie Cups for dessert!

Roasted Red Pepper Fettuccine with Smoked Sausage

Ingredients:

  • 8 ounces fettuccini
  • 1/2 pound smoked sausage (I used Roasted Garlic Smoked Sausage), cut into 1/4 inch rounds
  • 16 ounce jar roasted red peppers
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1/4 -1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper
  • chopped fresh parsley (dried parsley will work too)

Directions:

  1. Bring a large pot of heavily salted water to a boil and cook fettuccine to al dente, according to package directions. Drain, rinse and set aside.
  2. Meanwhile, in a large skillet brown the sliced smoked sausage over medium-high heat for about 5-6 minutes. Drain grease.
  3. Add entire jar of roasted peppers (including liquid in jar) to a mini food processor/chopper or blender.  Blend until smooth.
  4. Pour the roasted red pepper puree into skillet with smoked sausage, stir over medium heat until heated through.  Slowly add heavy cream, stir to combine and continue heating about 10 minutes or until sauce begins to thicken.
  5. Add drained pasta, Parmesan cheese, and parsley to skillet and gently toss to coat.
if you don't use roasted garlic smoked sausage, add 1-2 teaspoons of minced garlic when browning meat.
