there are so many nights when i get home from work and i’m tired, but i want a hearty, warm dinner. especially during these cold winter nights. here is one of our favorites that has a lot of great flavor and scores high on the “comfort food” scale …
Sausage & Tri-color Pasta
Tri-color pasta (any shape is fine, but I use the spirals)
Smoked Sausage (turkey sausage also tastes delicious in this & has less fat)
1 red pepper
Salt & Pepper
Cook pasta to desired doneness. While the pasta is cooking cut the pepper & onion into thin strips and cut sausage in 1/4-1/2 inch slices & brown on stovetop. The sausage is already cooked, but this browning gives it a great flavor! Add a little olive oil to the pan & saute the peppers & onions until soft. Add the sausage & pour over pasta & mix. Voila! Dinner is ready. Add salt & pepper to taste. You may not need much salt though as the sausage usually has a good amount in it.
