Rigatoni a la You by Country Girl Gourmet

So my family really likes Italian Sausage and are so happy that this month I am working with Johnsonville as an Allrecipes Allstar. Tonight I made another great dish, Rigatoni a la You. It was easy to make and only needed a handful of ingredients. Best yet my 4 kids devoured it all! I was hoping for leftovers but they left none. That meant I was eating Paleo with my husband tonight. I was a bit sad.

Getting started we have 6 ingredients… I forgot the sausage for the pic but I promise it is in this recipe!

IMG_0955Cook Sausage per package directions.  At the same time in a large pot boil water and gook Rigatoni per package directions. Drain and set aside.


After your sausage is done cooking saute garlic until golden and then add peppers and saute for a couple minutes. When done add spaghetti sauce and warm thoroughly.


Take your cooked sausages and slice into sausage coins.

Stir into the spaghetti sauce and then combine in a casserole with rigatoni.
If desired top with parsley and parmasaen cheese and Enjoy!
