Pasta with Peppers, Squash, & Tomatoes


  1. coarse salt
  2. 3/4 pound rigatoni
  3. 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  4. 1 pound sweet or spicy Italian sausage, casings removed
  5. 1 bell pepper (not green), cut into 1/4-inch strips
  6. 1 small yellow squash, cut into 1/4-inch rounds
  7. 2 pounds cherry tomatoes, halved
  8. red-pepper flakes
  9. grated Pecorino Romano, for serving
  • In a large pot of boiling salted water, cook pasta according to package instructions. Reserve 1/2 cup pasta water, then drain. 
  • Meanwhile, in a large skillet, heat 1 tablespoon oil over medium-high. Add sausage and cook, breaking apart with a slotted spoon, until cooked through, about 6 minutes. With slotted spoon, transfer sausage to a bowl.
  • Add 1 tablespoon oil and bell pepper to skillet and cook, stirring occasionally, until browned in spots, 6 minutes. Add squash and 3/4 the tomatoes; cook 1 minute. Add 1/4 cup pasta water and cook until tomatoes soften, 4 minutes. Return sausage to pan and add remaining tomatoes. Season with red-pepper flakes. Cook until sausage is warmed through and juices thicken slightly, about 2 minutes. Toss with pasta; if necessary, add remaining pasta water to create a light sauce that coats pasta. Serve with Pecorino Romano.
