Well, anyone who knows me well knows I like to cook and bake. Thank god I don’t always have time, because I’m pretty sure I would be huge as a house if I did. I’m italian, I like to eat! My husband is always telling me we don’t have to make such a big production over a meal. I’ve always been a huge fan of sitting down with everyone and listening to everyone’s day. Call me old fashioned, but there’s definitely something to be said about a family who eats together. So I guess I figured if we’re going to spend all this time, we might as well have some great food to share! So over the years I have searched and searched for some good recipes. I think I usually find them by complete accident. So I decided to share some of these recipes with all of you. I really thought this would help all my newlyweds who might not be use to cooking for two, or just cooking at all! 🙂 I don’t know if I’ll post these EVERY Sunday. But I’m starting to go over all of them, so hopefully you’ll get to see a lot of them.
So this recipe by far is one of my easiest ones, and I get the most rave reviews from people.
Bow Ties with Sausage and Peppers
- 8oz of bow tie pasta
- 12 oz of Italian Sausage (I usually use 4 links)
- 2 red sweet peppers, cut into pieces
- 1/2 cup vegetable or beef broth (try using low sodium ones too, it tastes just as good!)
- 1/4 tsp. black pepper
- 1/4 cup parsley
Cook your pasta normally. Drain when complete. While that’s cooking, cut the sausage into 1 inch pieces. Cook the sausage and peppers in a skillet on the oven until the sausage is brown. Drain any fat. Stir the broth and black pepper into the sausage mixture. Bring it to a boil, then reduce the heat and simmer uncovered for about 5 minutes. After the 5 minutes, take it and pour over the pasta. Add parsley. Toss and Voila! You’re done!
It’s that simple! Try it out and let me know how you like it!
