Bow Tie Pasta w/ Italian Sausage and Vegetables


*Featured on Women Living Well

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!

  1. This looks de-li-ci-ous!! Thanks for sharing.

    I have never seen myself as the family chef. I love to bake , but when it come s to cooking meals, I always feel like a failure. My mother was and is an amazing cook. Her creativity always blows me away. I just can’t compete…ha! ha! However, YOU have inspired me to use this as a ministry opportunity. I have been a Christian for 30 years, and not once did I think of cooking/baking in this way. Thanks for being the “utensils”…to whip up the ingredients in my heart. :O) BTW- I made your Pasta E Fagioli…my family LOVED it!!!!!! Thanks for sharing…keep cooking for Jesus.

  2. This looks so YUMMY!

  3. Mmm, that looks really good! I love the veggies in it. Aside from onion. Not an onion girl, but I can easily overlook that, heehee 🙂

    I have made this twice for our family so far, and my husband just loves it!! Thanks for the recipe!

    • YEA! We love it too!

      • Delicious! I discovered your sight today after we purchased some delicious Italian sausage while visiting my father-in-law in Louisville. I thought bowtie pasta would be good with it, so I googled bowtie pasta and Italian sausage. I am so happy to have found your site. I am a working mom (blessed to be off in summers). This quick, easy meal was delicious. My finicky 9 year old son even liked it!!

  5. Thans so much for your yumm-o recipe!

    I forgot that I had purchased heart shaped pasta a few weeks back so today we used your recipe to make a post-Valentines recipe! It sure was yummy even with the MUSHROOMS 🙂 I did add a cube of sugar and fresh basil to sweeten it up a bit. My kids called it “sweetie-meat pasta” Thanks again!

  7. Hello Janelle!

    Thank you for posting these yummy recipes and for also sharing your faith in Christ at the same time. It is encouraging and people need to see that Christians are real people too who cook and have hobbies and enjoy life 🙂 Tonight I made this bowtie pasta with italian sausage and vegetables and it turned out “great” – says my husband! Looking forward to reading and trying more! I like the quote from your video testimony”You didn’t find Jesus cause Jesus wasn’t lost, you were! Jesus found you!” Blessings to you and your family, Love in Christ, your sister Monika
