Roasted Vegetable & Smoked Sausage Penne

Got the idea for this recipe from here

I didn’t follow this recipe 100%, I kind of made it my own!

2 lb Polish Kielbasa, cut into 1″ slices
1 lb Penne
3 small Zucchini, cut lengthwise and sliced
1 small Yellow Squash, cut lengthwise and sliced
2 cups of tomato puree
1 Red bell pepper, seeded and chopped
1 Orange bell pepper, seeded and chopped
6 cloves Garlic, minced
1/2 med Red onion, cut in half and sliced into half rings
1/2 cup Olive oil, divided
1/3 cup Dry white wine
Kosher salt, to taste
Black pepper, ground fresh, to taste
(not in the picture but I also used Cajun seasoning and 1 cup of grated mozzarella cheese)

Preheat your oven to 375º.

Mix all of the vegetables, (minus the onions), garlic, 1/2 the olive oil, salt and pepper well in a large mixing bowl.

set aside

Preheat a dutch oven to medium high heat and coat the bottom with the other 1/2 of olive oil

add the onions, and sauté

cook until they are translucent and then add the wine, cook for a couple of minutes then add in the sausage

I also sprinkled some Cajun seasoning over the onion and sausage, to taste

Sauté onions and sausage for another 5-7 minutes

set aside

Cook the pasta according to the package directions

Then grab a large baking dish and add the pasta first and then add in the veggies and then onions and sausage and kind of mix together, as best you can in the baking dish. Then pour the tomato puree over the top of the veggies and sausage. sprinkle with a little more salt and pepper to taste

Then pop in the oven and bake for about 30 minutes, uncovered

Then pull the baking dish out of the oven and sprinkle the top with grated mozzarella cheese and bake for another 10 minutes, or until the cheese has melted




Serve immediately.
