What goes with pasta recipes with roasted red peppers?

Since the red pepper sauce is so rich and creamy, I like to keep the side dishes light.

Another option to try is serving with rice instead of pasta.  Make it even quicker and learn how to freeze rice and you can make this meal even simpler.

I love to grab the rice from the freezer in the morning and when we come home it is all ready to reheat and serve with this this chicken.

We do this for lots of meals and it helps put together a quick meal. If you are not freezing rice, you should be.

Tip for roasted red pepper pasta:

One of my favorite tips is to use a small food chopper or food processor to quickly and easily chop onions.  If you do not have one of these, I highly recommend them. They are such a time saver and you make cooking so fast and easy.

I usually just chop the entire vegetable and freeze what I don’t need. It’s so nice to be able to just take the diced onion out of the freezer for recipes.

This is how I meal prep. It’s so quick and easy and helps get dinner on the table fast.

Try adding bell peppers to the recipe. It is so good!

You will save even more time making this recipe when you can just grab the onion from the freezer.

This Italian sausage pasta is so versatile and budget friendly.

You can easily substitute other meats for the Italian Sausage. Try ground turkey, ground chicken, shredded chicken and more.

Feel free to swap out the penne pasta for another type of pasta such elbow, bow tie or really anything!

We have used shells, bow tie and anything that was in the pantry. ? The recipe is really amazing whatever you use.

You can also stretch this meal even further by adding extra pasta, spinach or anything your family likes. We have used extra pastas when the kids had friends over that ended up staying for dinner.
