Olive Garden Grilled Sausage and Pepper Rustica can be made at home with this easy to prepare recipe. Enjoy this restaurant flavor at home.
Olive Garden Grilled Sausage and Pepper Rustica is a dish combines Italian sausage, fresh mozzarella cheese, and peppers to make this flavorful dish. I love that there is a hint of spice which really brings out the flavor of Italian sausage. They make their dish with penne pasta, but if you don’t happen to have any of this on hand, I think any pasta that you have will do. If you want to be low carb or gluten-free, you can take a pass on the pasta. It makes a hearty dinner all by itself.
