Sausage and capsicum pappardelle
Found this recipe on Gourmet Traveller and it is a rather good one. I was especially attracted to this recipe because of the ingredients, firstly the pork sausage and then the roasted capsicum. I love anything with roasted capsicum in it and matching it with pork sausages was a big plus. I have not had pappardelle before, it is what I would call ribbon pasta, it is a bit like fettuccini but about twice as thick, apparently Pappardelle pasta origins are in the Tuscany region of Italy. I used the thick Italian sausages, I get them from our local IGA in Cedric St and they are the nicest sausages I have ever eaten, the flavour is awesome but not over the top as many seem to be, they went fantastic in this. Will be looking forward to my lunch tomorrow!
