Recipe: Sausage & Peppers over Pasta With Bread Sticks

Sausage & Peppers is one of my favorite meals. It’s easy and delicious. I love just about anything with pasta! I love all different cuisines, especially Italian. I’m sure some of you real Italian’s will get a chuckle from my recipe but you could always chime in with your tips! Help a girl out! I like to get things right. 😉

Start preparing the Copycat Olive Garden Bread Sticks first. They are SO good. I used Einkorn All Purpose Flour and they turned out light, buttery and delicious. Best if eaten all in the same day. If you have more than 3 in your family, this should not be a problem, let me assure you! Haha! Then proceed with Sausage & Peppers Recipe.
