Bow Ties with Sausage & Asparagus
Total TimePrep/Total Time: 30 min.
So quick and easy. Inexpensive when asparagus is .99 a lb. Good flavor and can be personalized as well. Ground sausage works as well as links. Great summer dish with sliced tomatoes.
Love this recipe!! It’s a wonderful healthy one dish meal. For added flavor and color, I ADDED about 4 large cut up MARINATED SUNDRIED TOMATOES at the very end and tossed in about 2 tbsp of the marinade oil from the jar and stirred thoroughly before adding the parmasean cheese. My family LOVED it (and my son is one finicky eater).
I've got to admit that when I looked at the recipe to make dinner tonight, I expected it to lack flavor. It had enough flavor not to be bland and was surprisingly (to me) good. The guys in the house liked having sausage with the pasta for a change. A couple of people dished up seconds. I should note that I dropped the asparagus in when the pasta had 4-1/2 minutes left on the cooking time knowing that my kids would prefer softer vs. crisp tender.
Delicious recipe! I cut it in half for the two of us, and used cooked chicken sausage links (which I sliced) and mozzarella cheese instead of Parmesan. My husband is thrilled that we have leftovers.
