Spicy Bow Tie Pasta with Broccoli and Sausage

4 Jun

This recipe basically has all of my favorite things in it: sausage, pasta, sun-dried tomatoes, and I added parmesan cheese. It was so good! There was so much flavor, and it was so easy to make. There really isn’t even much else to say about it. Really great, quick meal. The red onion in this is such a nice touch too. I almost never use a whole onion when a recipe calls for it, but this one I did and I am so glad. Red onion is one of those weird flavors but it works with this.

Spicy Bow Tie Pasta with Broccoli and Sausage

2 cups broccoli florets
1 cup sun-dried tomatoes, soaked in oil
2 cups italian sausage
1 red onion, thinly sliced
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/3 cup dry white wine
1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper (I like to use more, but it gets spicy fast)
salt and pepper to taste
1/2 cup of your favorite prepared jerk sauce (try Walker’s Wood)
8 ounces bow tie pasta, cooked according to package

1. In a large saute pan, drizzle a couple teaspoons of olive oil. Heat over medium-high heat.

2. Add sausage and cook until brown on all sides. Remove and slice.

3. Return sausage to pan, add onion and saute until onion is tender, about 3-4 minutes.

4. Add garlic and saute a minute more.

5. Add white wine and scrape the brown bits off the pan.

6. Stir in tomatoes, broccoli, and pasta. Season to taste with salt, pepper, and parmesan cheese.
