Sistah Sausage

Don't you just love and easy, delicious dish that you can throw together in no time? Tonight's dinner was Sausage Pasta and it certainly fit that criteria. We have only had this dish a handful of times, but I was reminded tonight that it needs to go in the regular rotation. My sister happened to give us this recipe and if I'm not mistaken it came from an old issue of Everyday Food. I did try to search their website for it to give credit, but to no avail. I guess I just have Cha to thank for this one! Speaking of her, readers can look forward to her guest blog on Wednesday. She will expertly be whipping up some Cherry Chicken to share with us. An homage to Northern Michigan and The Answer Man, I'm sure.

Sausage Pasta

1 lb. Italian sausage
1 red bell pepper, chopped
1 lb. bow tie pasta, cooked
3 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 tsp. crushed red pepper flakes
1/4 c. plus 2 T. olive oil
Heat 2 T. olive oil in a large pan. Add sausage and cook until done. Add bell pepper and cook 3-4 minutes. Add cooked pasta and the rest of the ingredients and stir.

*Note: I added the garlic with the red pepper since we are not big fans of raw-ish garlic.


  1. This sounds like the perfect pasta dish to get the answerman to eat...Italian sausage would entice him!

    Nice pic!!!

    Looking forward to Wednesday's guest post from Cha!
