Ingredients

1
pound
dried pasta
1/2
cup plus 1 tablespoon
extra-virgin olive oil
1
pound
Italian sausage, casings removed
1
large red bell pepper (cut into 1/2-inch pieces)
3
cloves
garlic, minced
1/2
teaspoon
crushed red pepper flakes
1 1/4
teaspoons
kosher salt
1
cup
fresh flat-leaf parsley, roughly chopped

Directions

  1. Cook the pasta according to package directions. Reserve 1/4 cup of the cooking water, drain the pasta, and return it to the pot.
  2. Meanwhile, heat 1 tablespoon of the olive oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Add the sausage and cook, crumbling with the back of a wooden spoon, until it's browned and cooked through, about 10 minutes. Transfer to a plate.
  3. Wipe out the skillet and heat the remaining 1/2 cup of oil over medium heat. Add the bell pepper and cook, stirring occasionally, until tender, 3 to 4 minutes. Add the garlic and cooked sausage and cook, stirring, for 30 seconds.
  4. Add the pasta water, red pepper, salt, and parsley and bring to a boil. Toss with the cooked pasta.
