Linguine with Turkey Sausage and Peppers (adapted from what I think was a Martha Stewart recipe)
-1 lb linguine
-1 lb turkey sausage, casings removed
-6 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
-4 red bell peppers, thinly sliced
-4 Tbs butter
-kosher salt and pepper for seasoning
1. Cook linguine. Drain, reserving 1.5 c of the pasta water; return pasta to pot.
2. Meanwhile, cook sausage and 2 Tbs water in a large covered nonstick skillet over medium 5 minutes. Uncover; raise heat to medium-high. Brown sausage, breaking it up with a spoon, about 7 minutes.
3. Add garlic, belle peppers, and 1/4 c reserved pasta water; cook until peppers soften, 6 minutes. Add 3/4 c pasta water and butter; swirl to combine.
4. Transfer to pasta pot. Season with salt and pepper, serve.
Makes 6 servings.
This is delicious and easy and quick and wonderful in so many ways. J loved it as well. It reminds me of a sausage/kale pasta dish I make with a cream base…minus the cream which is better for my waist and mind! Leftovers made the whole office smell good.
