Whole Wheat Linguini with Sausage and Roasted Peppers

Makes 5 servings. 1 1/2 cups it’s 370 calories.

You can make this dish with spicy sausage. I use mild because my kids don’t like the heat. 

Ingredients:

14 oz hot Or mild Ground Italian sausage

1 teaspoon olive oil

1/3 cup chopped onion

12 oz jar roasted peppers in water, diced

3 cloves garlic, smashed

kosher salt and black pepper

1 1/2 cups crushed tomatoes 

1/2 cup low-sodium chicken broth

9 oz whole Wheat Linguini 

2 tbsp grated Pecorino Romano, plus more for serving

1 tbsp fresh chopped parsley
Directions:

Heat a large skillet over medium heat and cook the sausage until browned and cooked through, breaking it up as it cooks. Set aside.
Add the oil, onions, roasted peppers, garlic and kosher salt and black pepper to the skillet and cook until golden, 4 to 5 minutes. Add the tomatoes and chicken broth and return the sausage to the skillet. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer on low 15 minutes.

Meanwhile cook the pasta in a large pot of salted water according to package directions. Drain and toss with the sauce and Pecorino cheese, cooking and stirring about 2 minutes on low to marry the flavors. Finish with chopped parsley and serve with more cheese on the side, if desired.
