A bold Italian red to complement this well-seasoned sausage and tomato sauce.
Slice sausage into 2 cm/0.75 in. pieces. Peel garlic and onion. Finely chop garlic and cut onion into wedges. Chop bell pepper into small pieces and roughly chop rosemary and parsley. Heat olive oil in a frying pan and fry sausage, garlic, and bell pepper for approx. 2 – 3 min., then add onion and chickpeas and fry for approx. 2 – 3 min. more.
Add tomatoes and season with salt and pepper. Let simmer for approx. 10 – 15 min., uncovered. In the meantime, bring water to a boil in a large saucepan, add salt, and cook penne according to package instructions, until al dente.
Drain penne and add to sauce. Mix in rosemary and parsley and toss to coat the pasta. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Serve with Parmesan cheese. Enjoy!
