Spicy Whole Wheat Linguini with Sausage and Roasted Peppers – A hearty, delicious pasta dish – ready in 30 minutes.
Whole Wheat Linguini with Sausage and Roasted Peppers
If only you could taste how good this dish is! But since you can’t, you’re going to have to take my word for it. It’s everything I love in a meal and it’s super quick to make. I love using spicy chicken sausage to give it a little kick, but if you want to make this mild for your family, simply swap it for sweet Italian.
I don’t know about you, but for years I tried to like whole wheat pasta and never found a brand that my family would eat. Then last year I discovered DeLallo organic whole wheat pasta and it changed my life. My Italian husband who is pretty picky about his pasta also loves it, and now it’s the only brand of whole wheat I will ever use. Their gluten-free pasta is also AMAZING so if you can’t eat gluten, you can easily swap it out.
A few weeks ago, a few bloggers including myself got a chance to visit the Delallo Italian Marketplace in Jeanette, PA which was established back in 1954 as a small market and has grown into a large marketplace complete with the largest antipasti bar I’ve ever seen!
The DeLallo family visits Italy and works closely with the BEST of the best which allows them to import the highest quality pasta, tomatoes, olive oil, etc. If you are ever in that area, you must stop and visit – I was in DeLallo heaven!! Luckily, many of their products can be found in supermarkets across the country and you can also order their products online.

Made this tonight and it was amazing, will be making this again soon.
Unbelievably delicious! I did use Italian turkey sausage since that was what I could find. I also had been gifted some Trofie pasta that I was looking for a special recipe to use on so tried this. It was to die for!
Quick, easy, and delicious!
My family loves this recipe, the only change I made was by using sweet Italian turkey sausage.
Very easy and very good!
Delicious! Didn’t change a thing!
Has anyone added fresh spinach into this dish?
Hi Gina, I was going to make this tonight but when I saw the WW Purple 9 pts was hesitant to take that big of a point hit. I ran your ingredients through the WW recipe builder exactly as listed above, and it came back with 3 pts. I did it a second time to make sure I didn’t make a mistake, and again it came out to 3 points.
This was a big enough points discrepancy that I wanted to let you know. This dish is SO GOOD, for 3 points, it is a no brainer!
Yes, I thought the same thing. Thanks for the comment 🙂
i did the same and came back as 3 points too! so glad i came to the comments to see if others did as well.
I doubled checked as well and have updated purple points. It may vary depending on which pasta is used. 🙂
Made this tonight and it was so yummy! Used penne instead of linguini.
After reviewing the recipe I thought maybe a little too much Roasted peppers but boy was I wrong – It really takes the pasta sauce to another level – This dish is delish!
This is one of my favorite pasta dishes! It’s my go-to in the Fall/Winter because of its heat and comfort-food quality. I can’t always find chicken sausage, so I buy hot Italian turkey sausage and slice it thin after cooking and then I toss it into the pan.
So yummy and filling and EASY! My husband and I love it, so we make it again and again.
We going to try this in the IP. Making it similar to your one pot spaghetti recipe. I’ll be adding extra liquid of course. Hope the one pot works.
This was SO good. My boyfriend and I both loved it! Had a little bit more than a serving and was nice and full!
This is going on the shopping list! What makes the sodium content so high?
This looks delicious! I’d love to bring it to a party. Can this be made ahead? Would it reheat well?
I’ve made this twice in the past week. It’s so good. And my kids scarfed it.
My husband and I love this dish and when eat Paleo we sub spaghetti squash for linguine and it’s still so delicious! Thanks, Gina!
Yum, this was delightful–thank you for sharing!
