Italian Sausage with Bow Ties
Total TimePrep/Total Time: 25 min.
Good with my additions. Boiled pasta water, threw in a pound of cut green beans for 5 minutes. Scooped them out and ran under cold water. For the sauce added Italian seasoning, more garlic, good helping of salt and pepper, and used a 28oz can of crushed tomatoes with basil and 1 14oz can of stewed tomatoes. Tossed the beans in with the pasta. Saved a cup of pasta water for thinning because it thickens up as it sits. I thin it out a bit for saving leftovers.
I agree with, Marcia. This was ok as is, but kind of bland. I added LOTS more seasonings...oregano, more basil, more salt, pepper, more garlic, and more red pepper flakes. After bringing to a boil, I covered and simmered it for 30 minutes to allow the flavors to come together. It was really good after the additions and the extra cooking time.
I found this recipe years ago and have been making it ever since. This is one of my "Go Tos" when I don't know what to make. It's one of my family favorites!
One of my husband’s favorite dishes!! So delicious and simple to make!!
Delicious as well as being quick and easy! I used a quart jar of our home-canned tomatoes and otherwise followed the recipe exactly. My husband loved it and it will go in our regular dinner menu rotation.
This was a quick easy dish to make. Unfortunately, I wasn't impressed with the flavor as it was very bland. I added extra pepper flakes, salt and black pepper to give it some flavor. Probably will not make again.
Nice, quick dinner. I use hot Italian sausage and scale back on the amount of tomatoes. It has definitely become a favorite at home.
Absolutely delicious! I halved the recipe and added 1/4 pound each of sweet and hot sausage. I also used half-and-half because it was in my fridge. The cream really sets this dish apart; the sauce would be wonderful on any type of pasta. Next time I may add baby spinach, also. This is a definite keeper.
Wow! This dish was amazing, and I make a mean, well any kind of pasta actually, and I'm impressed! Great flavor! The only changes I made were using sausage that we keep cooked and chopped in the freezer to have on hand, some fresh parsley and some grated Parm in the sauce! I highly recommend!
My entire family loved this recipe. Usually my kids aren't fans of italian sausage, but the creamy tomato sauce really tones it down into just the perfect flavor for them. We loved this and will definitely make it again!
