Sausage and Bow Ties

"This is a good pasta recipe that can be whipped up quickly on those busy nights when the kids have activities. When I have more time, I use fresh chopped tomatoes. The sausage is easier to slice if you stick it in the freezer for about 20-30 minutes to firm it up a bit. Cook time includes pasta cooking time."

  1. This was a quick and easy lunch and a great way to use up some turkey sausage that I had from last night's grilled pizzas. I could see how this recipe could be a kid-pleaser. I have plenty of leftovers for DH's and my lunch tomorrow. Thanks. Made for ZWT7
  2. We really liked this dish; the flavours mixed together nicely and it was quick to make. I used turkey sausages and cut back the recipe back by 1/3 and there was still a generous serving for 4 people. I used the fresh tomato option which I loved because I like pasta dishes that are not too saucy. Made for ZWT & by Food.Commadoes
  3. I prepared this recipe tonight, it was pretty good, my kids LOVED it, but I felt it needed something like some more salt, but I am a salt lover. Will definitely make this again, a great quick family pleasing meal!!
  4. Oh this was so yummy Parsley!!! I am always making adjustments to recipes but I didn't to this one because it was perfect as is!!!! the only thing I did was minus 1 tbl spoon of oil and add mozzarella to the final finish! I used jalapeno kielbasa from Walmart, it was what I had and it turned out perfect. SO GOOD I had to share it on the food blog!!! wish I could give more than 5 stars THANK YOU
