Cooking method

Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook and stir turkey sausage in the hot skillet until browned and crumbly, 5 to 7 minutes; drain and discard grease. Add mushrooms, green bell pepper, red bell pepper, yellow bell pepper, onion, and garlic; cook and stir until liquid from mushrooms has evaporated and mushrooms are tender, 5 to 10 minutes.
Pour white wine into sausage mixture and cook until wine reduces, about 5 minutes. Add beef broth and Italian seasoning; simmer until liquid reduces by half, about 15 minutes. Stir red pepper flakes into sausage mixture and simmer for 5 minutes more.
Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook rigatoni in the boiling water, stirring occasionally until cooked through but firm to the bite, about 13 minutes. Drain and transfer to a serving bowl.
Spoon sausage mixture over pasta and top with Parmesan cheese.
