I found this pasta a while ago, and it quickly became a favorite in this house. It takes a lot to become a staple on our menu. MR. PBandO can be a particular eater. I know I’ve mentioned this before. I will say this, he has finally stopped making faces at the mere mention of a new meal… like a 2 year old
I think he actually asked me once, why I couldn’t just stick to 4 or 5 standard meals…. Seriously! That would be like locking me in food hell. No way! As I’ve said he has come a long way and I always try and have a backup meal for him… or pizza is a phone call away.
Back to this pasta. I’m actually getting hungry talking about it. Like I just realized I have 2 whole cut up spicy sausages in the freezer, begging to be thawed and ready for this pasta. Sorry I gotta go, and make this pasta, … again!
You should too.
Spicy Sausage Pasta
1 Tablespoon of Olive Oil
1 Medium Onion, Diced
2 Cloves of Garlic, Minced
2 Spicy Sausages. Cooked and Sliced
1 Teaspoon Each of Salt and Pepper
2 Cups of Low Sodium Chicken Broth
1 Cup of Tomato Sauce
½ Cup of Cream ( I used 5%)
2 Cups Dry of Penne Pasta
1 Cup of Cheese ( I used a Cheddar and Mozzarella Blend)
2 Green Onions, Copped
In a skillet, heat olive oil over medium heat. Add onions and garlic, cook until onions are softened, about 4-5 Minutes. Add cooked sausage, salt and pepper and cook for 30 more seconds.
Pour chicken broth, tomato sauce, cream and pasta into the skillet and stir until combined. Allow the mixture to come to a boil. Reduce the heat to low and let simmer for 15 minutes, or until the pasta is tender. Stir occasionally..
Stir in the cheese and green onions and enjoy
