This quick meal is great for when you don’t have a lot of time and the gloomy summer weather outside has you craving a few carbs.
Plus it’s another method of eating the hated sausages.
And an excuse to eat more cheese.
Start a pot of water a-boiling and cook up pasta, such as farfalle, penne, or rotini. Cook enough for four or five people.
Slice yourself up half an onion, a red pepper, and a handful of mushrooms. Set the pepper and mushrooms aside for now.
Sauté the onion with a spoonful or two of minced garlic until softened.
Squeeze in the contents of three hot Italian sausages and cook, stirring to break up the sausages, until the meat is no longer pink.
Add in your peppers and mushrooms and stir for a few minutes longer.
Drain your pasta and stir in 1/2 cup pesto.
Add in your sausage and vegetables and a further 1/2 cup pesto and toss to coat.
Serve hot or cold, garnished with grated parmesan or romano cheese.
