Spicy Italian  Sausage Pasta 

Life Around the Table

This Spicy Italian Sausage Pasta is a great choice when enjoying a date night at home or any time you want some comfort food. Every bite of creamy pasta provides a hint of tangy Dijon mustard, and smoky-spice from the chipotle peppers and spicy Italian sausages.

Simple Ingredients

– spicy Italian sausage – rigatoni pasta – olive oil – onion – white wine – red bell peppers – cremini mushroom  – heavy cream – grainy Dijon mustard - chipotle peppers in  adobo sauce – salt and pepper

Step 1: Cook the sausages and set aside. Step 2: Cook the pasta to al dente according to package directions.

Step 3: Cook the onion. Heat 2 tablespoon of olive oil over medium heat in the same pan used for cooking the sausages. Sauté the diced onion until it turns translucent.

Step 4: Deglaze the pan. Pour the white wine into the pan with the sautéed onions. Stir for about 1 to 2 minutes to cook off the alcohol and thoroughly deglaze the pan.

Step 5: Cook peppers and mushrooms and add all sauce ingredients.

Step 6: Reduce the sauce and adjust for seasoning. Let the sauce simmer until it reduces and coats the back of a spoon. This takes approximately 15 minutes. Take your time to taste the sauce and adjust the seasoning.

Step 7: Add the cooked sausages and cooked pasta and stir till they're coated in the sauce. Garnish, serve hot, and enjoy!
