This is one of my grandma’s delicious recipes! I know you will just love it… my family sure does! Every time I make it at home we all go back for seconds. It is also a beautiful dish to have when company is over. Serve with crusty bread and a salad and you will have an amazing meal. Enjoy!
(perfect for those of you who have extra zucchini from the garden!)
1 box bow tie noodles, olive oil, 5 links of sweet Italian sausage, onion, fresh garlic, zucchini, cherry tomatoes, salt and pepper
Cook sausage as directed. I place mine in a pan with about a cup of water- larger sausages like this take longer to cook. By steaming them, they cook on the inside without burning on the outside too quickly. The water will eventually evaporate.
Boil your box of noodles as directed.
After sausage is cooked. Take out of pan and leave drippings. Add olive oil and minced garlic. Sauté until on med heat for about 2 mins -do not brown.
Cut your sausage into coin-like slices
Add and saute all veggies in the pan with the garlic and oil
Add the sausage and toss with pasta in the pan
Remove from pan and add Parmesan cheese. This is such a delicious dish that you will come back to over and over again…we sure have!
