Sausage Pepper Fettuccine Skillet is a quick and delicious dinner that's always a hit with our family. A great Italian sausage pasta recipe.

How to make Sausage Pepper Fettuccine Skillet :

  1.    Cook pasta in salted water according to the package instructions.
  2.    Heat skillet over high heat with couple tablespoons of oil. Add the pepper & onion and on medium-high heat slightly brown it. If your sausage does not have any cheese in it, you can add it at the same time and brown everything together. ** I had chicken sausage with cheese and artichokes so I did not want the cheese to burn before the pepper & onion had the chance to brown, so I added the sausage after the pepper and onion  browned.
  3.  Continue stirring and cooking everything until the sausage is slightly browned.

The sausage, peppers and onions are sauteed before the sauce is made in the same skillet and the pasta is added.

Preparing the Sauce for this sausage pasta recipe:

  1. Take 1 cup of pasta water and add about 3 chicken bouillon cubes, crush the bouillon cubes and stir everything until they’re dissolved. Alternatively, just use 1 cup of hot broth.
  2. Pour the chicken broth over the peppers and sausage.
  3. Add the cream.
  4. Now add the drained pasta, parsley and garlic. Stir to combine and simmer on medium heat until the sauce is thickened and coats the pasta nicely. Taste and adjust the seasoning.
  5. When the pasta is served in a bowl, sprinkle with a couple of halved cherry tomatoes.

    I’ve been making this recipe for a while now, and everyone who has had it loves it! I love it with Andouille sausage, but have subbed shrimp before and it was great! This summer I had an over abundance of zucchini on hand, so I did 1 cup chopped peppers, one cup sliced zucchini, and that is how I have done it from here on out- one of the only ways I’ll eat zucchini. this recipe is so flavorful and creamy, thank you!!

    this looks delicious, could I add shrimp to this dish or will it change the flavor? would like to make it tonight.

    • You could definitely add shrimp, it will still be good. Just make sure not to overcook the shrimp, so it doesn’t turn to rubber 🙂

    This recipe looks delicious! Is smoked sausage already cooked? If I’m not using smoked, should I boil it first?

    · Reply
    • It depends on the sausage. Some sausage will be slightly smoked but still raw, while others are cooked with the smoke. Regardless, browning the sausage before adding it into the pasta will produce better flavor profile then just adding it as is 🙂

      So if you’re using raw sausage then brown it until it’s cooked through, but even if you’re using precooked/cooked by smoke sausage, still brown it for better flavor profile.

    Looks delicious, definitely will be trying this out soon! Only question, can I substitute normal tomatoes for cherry tomatoes? Cherry tomatoes are pretty expensive where I’m at so I’d rather use normal tomatoes if it’s possible! If I can, what should be the amount to sub in? Thanks!

    · Reply
    • Hi Priya,
      cherry tomatoes just hold their shape better but I don’t see why you can’t just cut up regular tomatoes 🙂 So go ahead and use what is available to you, it won’t affect the taste at all 🙂

        Okay, thank you for the response! How many regular tomatoes should I sub in for this recipe?

    Wow! Wonderful pasta dish! I made this for dinner tonight and it was a major hit with the family. So easy to make and so pretty to display. I love bell peppers and garlic and the smoked sausage really gave it great flavor. I didn’t expect that everything would fit in the largest skillet I had, so I used a large pot instead. If you are someone who likes a lot of extra sauce, you might want to double the sauce. However, I thought it was perfect as is. Added this one to my family recipe box and will definitely be making it again!

    How do you slice the sausage without tairing the skin? That drives me crazy

    · Reply
    • Hi Debbie,
      I think you’re thinking of breakfast sausage which is a little harder to cut without messing it up, but mine was this Artichoke & Garlic or this Roasted Garlic and Gruyere (I can’t remember for sure, but it really doesn’t matter, as long as you like the flavor) and it was totally fine to cut, since I think it was pre-smoked or something. I get mine from Costco and they have several flavors from this company, all of which I really like.

    What type of sausage did you use? Is it stuffed or flavored?

    I made this for dinner last night for some relatives and they loved it! I also used Andouille sausage, spaghetti noodles (what I had on hand) and left out the tomatoes (I don’t care for them). I was really tasty and had just the right amount of kick. Thank you for sharing!

    Do i have to cook cherry tomatoes?

    · Reply
    • I don’t like cooked tomatoes, so I added them in the end to the bowl of served pasta, but if you want to, you can add them a minute before you are done cooking the sauce and pasta and quickly heat the tomatoes through. It’s up to you 🙂
