Bow Tie Pasta with Italian Sausage

Published by at 6:02 pm under Cooking at Home

If you are looking for a simple pasta recipe that is tasty and easy to make, then we highly suggest throwing together Italian sausage with onions, tomatoes, bell peppers, and herbs and mixing it up with bow tie pasta for a stomach-satisfying meal. There’s really not much to it, but it sure hits the spot! If you want to spice it up, use Hot Italian Sausage, which is what we used.

Start by browning 1 lb of the Italian sausage, casings removed. You can use hot, sweet, or any variety that you prefer.  When it's done, remove and set aside.

Drain off all but about a tablespoon of the sausage drippings and saute some onions, garlic, and bell peppers.

We had fresh tomatoes on hand, so we chopped up a few of them to add to the skillet. If you don't have tomatoes, you can use 1 can of diced tomatoes with the liquid.

Return the Italian sausage back to the pan together with this tomato sauce. Season with salt and pepper. And of course, cook your bow tie pasta in a separate pot until al dente.

You might feel a little guilty with the Italian sausage, but at least you can feel good about all the fresh vegetables and herbs that went along with this dish!

    Bow Tie pasta first sounds strange to me, but then I find out that it is also a pasta we love, the butterfly pasta. Both names are cool, aren’t they?!

    That’s the ideal comfort food! All it needs is a large sprinkling of parm cheese and a piece of crusty bread to scoop up the last bit of sauce and I’m in heaven. Lovely work!

    Our Italian Restaurant “Cacciatore’s” could not have done better compared to the “Italian Rustica” they serve to your simple throw together bow-tie pasta with Italian Sausages. I loved this recipe.
