Happy Belated Valentine's Day......Pasta Primavera with Sausage!
We had a wonderful Valentine's Day, sorry I didn't post a romantic recipe, or something like that, but I was so busy preparing. What a treat for me, my Hubby was home and we went to breakfast, and got to spend some of the day together. My little boy Davey's 2nd Grade class had a party, so I was busy preparing and helping with that, it was fun!
I made a most delicious dinner last night, Chicken Cordon Blue, the Easy Way, with Rice Pilaf, and green beans. The best part of the whole dinner were the Chocolate Covered Strawberries, they were so delicious, and everyone loved them.....I ate six of them, too many, cause today I'm in sugar overload! I'll post that recipe soon.
Today I am sharing a recipe I made over the weekend, Pasta Primavera with Sausage! This recipe was so easy, and delicious. Try it, you will love it!
Pasta Primavera with Sausage
Italian Sausage, about 6 links (or whatever sausage you like)
2 TBS Butter
2 TBS Canola Oil or Olive Oil
1 large Onion chopped up
2 Red peppers cut up into thin short pieces
1 Red pepper cut up into thin short pieces
8 fresh Mushrooms, wiped cleaned and cut up
1 TBS fresh garlic minced
1/2 head of Broccoli florets cut up
2 hot cups of water
2 packets of chicken bouillon
1/2 cup white wine
salt and pepper to taste
1 lb Pasta (whatever kind you want)
Preheat the oven to 375. Put the sausages on a cookie sheet and cook for 20 minutes until done. In a large skillet, on medium to heat heat, melt the butter and add 2 TBS oil. Add the onion, peppers, and garlic, salt and pepper, and saute until soft, lower heat. Then add the broccoli and mushrooms. Add the white wine. Mix the water with the chicken bouillon, and add to the veggies, and let it cook uncovered on low for about 10 - 13 minutes until the sauce thickens just a little. Now at this point you should taste it, what does it need, more salt, and pepper? The sausage should be done cooking in the oven, take it out and cut it up, add to the veggie mixture.
Cook the pasta you want to go with this, drain it good. To serve, spoon the veggies and sausage mixture over the pasta, sprinkle with Parm cheese....so YUMMO!
