Ingredients
8 oz uncooked rigatoni
1/8 tsp table salt
8 oz raw turkey sausage, Italian-style, removed from casings
1 Tbsp minced garlic
2 Tbsp all-purpose flour
1 1/2 cup(s) fat-free skim milk
1 cup(s) frozen green peas, petite-variety
1/2 tsp table salt, or more to taste
1/4 tsp black pepper, freshly ground
1/2 cup(s) roasted red peppers, water-packed, sliced
1/2 cup(s) scallion(s), sliced
3 Tbsp grated Parmesan cheese

Instructions
Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add pasta to boiling water and cook according to package directions.
Meanwhile, in a large nonstick skillet, cook sausage stirring and breaking into chunks with a wooden spoon, until browned, about 3 minutes; remove to a bowl. Add mushrooms to skillet and sauté until browned and tender, about 3 minutes. Stir in garlic and cook 30 seconds until fragrant.

In a measuring cup, whisk together flour and milk until smooth; stir into skillet along with peas, salt and black pepper. Bring sauce to a boil; simmer until thickened and peas are tender, about 3 minutes. Stir in sausage, roasted peppers and scallions; remove from heat.

Drain pasta; return to pot. Add sausage sauce and cheese; toss to coat. Transfer to a serving bowl. Yields about 2 cups per serving.
