We consider pasta night a holiday—one that we like to celebrate at least once a week, if not more. If you agree, you’re in luck. This dish has it all: al dente rigatoni noodles, sautéed bell pepper, and flavorful chicken sausage, all tossed in a mouthwatering, creamy pink sauce. Of course, the festivities wouldn’t be complete without a generous sprinkle of Parmesan. Now, let the carb celebrations commence!

1

• Bring a medium pot of salted water to a boil. Wash and dry all produce. • Core, deseed, and dice bell pepper. Trim and thinly slice scallions, separating whites from greens.

2

• Heat a drizzle of olive oil in a large pan over medium-high heat. Add bell pepper and cook until lightly browned and slightly softened, 3-4 minutes. • Add sausage* and scallion whites to pan; cook, breaking up meat into pieces, until cooked through, 4-6 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.

3

• Once water is boiling, add rigatoni to pot. Cook until al dente, 10-12 minutes. • Reserve ½ cup pasta cooking water, then drain.

4

• While pasta cooks, stir Italian Seasoning, tomato paste, and 1 tsp sugar into pan with sausage mixture until coated. Pour in ¼ cup plain water. Bring to a simmer and cook for 1 minute, then reduce heat to low. • 4 SERVINGS: Use 2 tsp sugar and 1/3 cup plain water.

5

• Cut top off carton of cream sauce base to open fully; pour contents into pan with sauce. Using a spoon or spatula, scrape any remaining cream sauce from carton into pan. • Stir in 1 TBSP butter until melted. Season with salt and pepper. • 4 SERVINGS: Use 2 TBSP butter.

6

• Add rigatoni to pan with sauce; toss to coat. If needed, stir in reserved pasta cooking water a splash at a time until pasta is coated in a creamy sauce. • Divide pasta between bowls and top with Parmesan. Sprinkle with a pinch of chili flakes if desired. Garnish with scallion greens and serve.
