Our Favorite Pasta: Sweet & Spicy Sausage Pasta

Do you have a go-to recipe? One that you know by heart and always keep the ingredients on hand? 
I have two go-to recipes. Both of them were taught to me by my mom ๐Ÿ™‚ 


 {Recipe: Sweet & Spicy Sausage Pasta}

Ingredients:
-1 box shaped pasta of your choice
-2 cans of diced tomatoes
-Red pepper flakes, to taste
-2 garlic cloves
-1 pound sweet ground Italian sausage
-3+ tablespoons of AP flour
-1 cup heavy cream {or milk}
-wine, for the chef


Step 1: Brown the sausage with the garlic, salt and red pepper flakes. 
{I like for my sausage to be in very little chunks and very crispy…but it’s up to you!}

Step 2: Drain some of the grease and soak up the rest with your flour

Step 3: Add in your diced tomatoes and heavy cream
 {almond milk actually works well here too if you want to reduce the fat content a bit}

Step 4: While your pasta cooks, let your sauce mixture bubble until it thickens a bit.
{add in more flour if you think your sauce is too thin, but if you do this be sure to check the flavor and add in more garlic/red pepper/salt/etc if needed}

Place in your favorite serving bowl, top with fresh parm and herbs, serve!

Bon Appetit! 

This pasta is so quick and easy, I love it for that. But I also love it for its deep flavor and texture combination. The little tomato bits stay juicy and plump, the sausage has a kick of sweet and spicy and the sauce sticks to the fun shaped noodles so well. It’s a dish you will begin to dream about.

I hope this becomes one of your go-to recipes too! Let me know what you think

Bon Appetit!

P.S. will post our other go-to recipe someday soon…hint, its also sweet & spicy!

  1. I usually use fun-shaped noodles when I make pasta because my kids really enjoy their food if they see that itโ€™s cute and fascinating. This makes them want to eat more. Well, your sweet and spicy sausage pasta looks yummy. Itโ€™s not the typical pasta dish because you added a twist to it! ๐Ÿ˜‰ The ingredients will surely create a slightly sweet, spicy, and savory taste.
