Large Pot
Measuring Spoons
Measuring Cups


  • Core, then cut pepper into 1/2-inch pieces.
  • Peel, then cut onion into 1/2-inch pieces.
Cook peppers
  • Heat a large pot over medium-high heat.
  • When hot, add 1/2 tbsp (1 tbsp) oil, then peppers.
  • Cook, stirring occasionally, until tender-crisp, 3-4 min.
  • Season with salt and pepper.
  • Transfer peppers to a plate. Set aside.
Cook sausage and onions
  • Reheat the same pot over medium-high.
  • When hot, add sausage and onions to the dry pot.
  • Cook, breaking up sausage into smaller pieces, until no pink remains, 4-5 min.**
  • Carefully drain and discard excess fat, if desired.
Cook cavatappi
  • Add Tex-Mex paste, crushed tomatoes, broth concentrate, 2 cups water (3 1/2 cups) and 1/2 tsp (1 tsp) salt to the pot with sausage and onions.
  • Stir to combine, then bring to boil over high.
  • Once boiling, stir in cavatappi and reduce heat to medium.
  • Simmer uncovered, stirring often to prevent sticking to the pot, until cavatappi is tender, 14-16 min. (TIP: If pasta sticks too much, add more water, 1/4 cup at a time. Scrape up any pieces stuck to the bottom of the pot.)
Finish cavatappi
  • Add peppers, spinach and half the cheese to the pot with cavatappi.
  • Cook, stirring often, until spinach wilts, 1-2 min.
  • Season with pepper, to taste.
Finish and serve
  • Divide Southwest-style sausage and cavatappi between bowls.
  • Sprinkle remaining cheese over top.

If you've opted to get sausage, cook it in the same way the recipe instructs you to cook the beef.
