Kielbasa & Pepper Pasta

Kielbasa & Pepper Pasta

Are you ready for an EASY weeknight dinner recipe? I am so excited about this! I picked up some kielbasa from my local butcher planning to throw it on the grill, but when I got home, I decided to Google for another idea. I came across this recipe for Kielbasa & Pepper Pasta and decided to make a gluten-free version. Everyone LOVED it. My husband requested that I put it on my monthly meal rotation.

In the time it takes to boil a pot of pasta, you will have dinner on the table!

It took me about 5 minutes to prepare the peppers and onions.

Then I sliced up the sausage.

Then you just sauté the peppers and onions for about 5 minutes in olive oil or butter. Add the kielbasa for another 4-5 minutes until it’s lightly browned and cooked through.

While they’re cooking, you chop up some fresh herbs. I had parsley and sage on hand from our CSA.

Then you just throw it all together, along with a handful of shredded Colby Jack cheese. Serve it over linguine (I used Notta Pasta). With a side salad, you have a complete meal in just minutes!
