One Pot Wonder: Sausage + Mixed Veg Pasta

Pasta with 2 types of sausage + mixed veg

  • 4 sausages of your choice (I did 2 veal, 2 smoked brats) 
  • 2 bell peppers (I did 1 red, 1 green)
  • 1 onion
  • 3 cloves of garlic
  • 6 button mushrooms
  • 250g pasta (I did half a box of kamut pasta -high in protein!)
  • Olive oil
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Paprika
Recipe: (Serves 4)
  1. Fill up your pan with water, add a generous amount of salt and bring it up to a boil. Whenever you cook pasta, the water should be as salty as the sea.
  2. While waiting for the water to boil, slice up all the vegetables and sausages, and mince the garlic.
  3. Put the pasta into the boiling water and cook it al dente (I cooked mine for just about 8-9 minutes, but keep checking for its firmness every 30 seconds or so after the 7 minute mark).
  4. Drain the pasta and save a small cup of the starchy, salty water for later in case the pasta is too dry.
  5. Empty the pan and, in the same pan, pour a bit of olive oil in and sauté the minced garlic.
  6. Add the onions, peppers and mushrooms and keep mixing it around until it wilts and lets out some moisture.
  7. Add the sausages and keep mixing around until everything is cooked through.
  8. Add a pinch of salt, some freshly cracked black pepper and a few spoons of paprika. I also like to add a lot of chili flakes for some heat. Mix through.
  9. Put the pasta back into the pot and mix until everything is evenly combined.
  10. Serve it up!
