  • 1 box Pieno Pasta 
  • 6-8oz of Boulder Sausage Italian Sausage (see craft it your way)–>
  • 1/2 Medium Onion (white) sliced
  • 1 Green Pepper sliced
  • 1 tbsp (Extra-Virgin) Olive Oil
  • 1 can Diced Tomatoes

  • 1 glove Minced Garlic
  • 1 tbsp shredded Fresh Basil

Craft it your way!

We used Hot Italian to give it a BOuLDER flavor. Boulder Sausage Hot Italian is authentically blended with peppers and all-natural spices, giving the dish excellent flavor without the need for additional seasoning. Although, for many, flavor preferences vary. Alternatively, use regular Italian Boulder Sausage and season to taste with salt, pepper, & dried pepper flakes.
We chose to use ground sausage for simplicity and timeliness, although substituting Dinner Links could be a money move.

Directions for Pieno Pasta w/ Boulder sausage


  1. Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Once warm, add Boulder Sausage, onion, green pepper, and minced garlic. 
  2. While the sausage/veggies are cooking, bring a large pot of water to a rolling boil. Then, add Pieno Pasta. Cook until al dente (approximately 7-9 minutes), stirring occasionally.
  3. Flip/stir sausage occasionally and cook until vegetables are tender and sausage reaches an internal temperature of  165°F. If using links, once sausage is cooked – safely remove from pan, slice, and return it to pan. 
  4. Stir in tomatoes, paste, basil, and oregano. Heat thoroughly.  
  5. Drain pasta and toss into sauce mixture. If the sauce is too thick to coat noodles, add a little water. 
  6. Sprinkle with cheese if desired and serve. Season to taste. Enjoy!
