Spicy Sausage Pasta

This is a great summer meal.  The spicy sausage adds loads of flavour and the variety of veggies makes the dish very colourful and appealing.

Ingredients – Serves 4

  • 3 cups gluten free pasta
  • 4 hot Italian sausages
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 cup parsley, chopped
  • 1/2 cup vegetable stock
  • 1/4 cup red wine vinegar
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • Salt and ground black pepper
  • 1/4 pound thick slices provolone, chopped
  • 8 roasted red peppers from a jar, cut into small dice
  • 1 yellow pepper, diced
  • 1 orange pepper, diced 
  • 1/2 red onion, chopped


1. Cook pasta according to package directions, rinse and set aside.

2. In a high-sided skillet with about an inch of water, parboil the sausages until cooked through, about 8-10 minutes. Remove them from the skillet and let cool.  Slice sausage, heat some olive oil in a skillet and brown sausage.

3. Combine the garlic, parsley, vegetable stock, and red wine vinegar in a food processor. Pulse a few times to combine then stream in the olive oil while the machine is running.

4. In a large bowl, toss the pasta, dressing, chopped provolone, and all the veggies together. Top with the sausage and serve.
