Recipe: Rotini and Sausage


Rotini and Sausage

Ingredients:Famous Pasta Sauce

2 Tbs Olive Oil
1 lb Italian Sausage Links
1 lb Rotini Pasta
1 batch Famous Pasta Sauce
Parmesan Cheese, to taste


Start up a batch of my famous pasta sauce. While that is cooking, get your sausages in a pan with olive oil and cook, turning often, until they reach 170°. While the sausages are cooking and the pasta sauce is cooking, don’t forget to stir the sauce, go ahead and cook up your pasta. When the sausage is done, transfer to a cutting board and slice into roughly 1/2″ pieces. When the pasta is done, drain and set aside. When your pasta sauce is done, it’s time to dish up. On a plate layer the pasta, sausage and pasta sauce. Then top with however much Parmesan cheese you like.
