 Smoked Sausage and Peppers over Rigatoni

A couple of months ago I shared with you my new found love for eMeals along with the first recipe I’d tried from their weekly Family Classic Meal Plan (complete with recipes, a shopping list and coupons for the store you actually shop at). That recipe was the Roasted Lemon Garlic Chicken and it was a hit! I’ve served up many eMeals recipes since then. I made this last night and knew I had to share it! It’s absolutely delicious, not too spicy and an awesome change from the regular spaghetti and meat sauce or American Chop Suey I usually settle for in a pinch for time.

  1. Yummmmm! I love meals like this. Super easy and super delicious!

    I make a meal quite similar to this, but omit the rigatoni for angel hair pasta. I like the heaviness of the sausage and sauce with the lightness of the angel hair. But no matter what the noodle, this recipe would taste delightful!
