This recipe is a super easy pasta. We had a few links of sausage left in the fridge, as well as a few fresh Italian peppers, so we decided to make a quick weeknight pasta with it. You can use a spicy Italian sausage (what we had) or a sweet fennel sausage. Whatever you have will work. It’s going to be delicious! We used Orecchiette pasta, but if you don’t have that, try another small pasta like penne. You want the pasta to be a similar size to the crumbled sausage. We kept our sausage in large crumbles, similar to the size of the Orecchiette.
