If you’ve enjoyed some of my recipes before, you know how much I love a one-pan dinner.  Not only because all of my one-pot recipes are recipes that can be made in 30 minutes or less. Wait, no, actually that is why I love them. This One-Pan Italian Sausage and Peppers Pasta Recipe is one of those recipes and a family favorite. We make it a couple of times a month. Sometimes with spicy Italian Sausage and sometimes with sweet but either way it’s absolutely delicious.

Ingredients needed to make this Italian Sausage and Peppers Pasta

It doesn’t require a ton of fancy ingredients either. Just some Italian Sausage, bell peppers (I used red, yellow and orange because they were on sale but green work just as well) an onion, fresh garlic, a can of crushed tomatoes and your favorite Italian seasoning.

How to Make This One-Pan Italian Sausage and Peppers Pasta Recipe 

Italian sausage and peppers pasta
Yield: 6 Servings

One-Pan Italian Sausage & Peppers Pasta Recipe

Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 25 minutes
Total Time: 30 minutes


  • 1 pack of fresh sweet sausage 
  • 1 can crushed tomatoes (28 oz can)
  • 1 small onion cut into pieces
  • 1 red pepper
  • 1 yellow pepper
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons Italian Seasoning
  • 5 gloves of garlic


    Cook your pasta.
    While pasta is cooking, cook your sausage in a large pan or cast iron pan with half the olive oil
    Slice the onion and peppers. If you don't have red or yellow peppers, green would work fine. These were just on sale and too pretty to pass up. 
    Once sausage is cooked remove from pan.  Add onion, peppers and garlic to the same pan you cooked the sausages in.

    Drizzle with remaining olive oil and cook a few minutes until they soften. 
    Add the pasta, sausage, italian seasoning and crushed tomatoes to the pan and give it a nice stir. Simmer on low-medium heat for about 5 - 7 minutes. 

    Remove from heat and top with freshly grated parmesan cheese.

    Serve immediately.
