Just to die for, really.
Bowties with Sausage Cream Sauce:
1 package Bowtie pasta
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 pound sweet or hot (your choice) Italian sausage, casings removed and crumbled
1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
3 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 cup diced onion
1 (28 ounce) can Italian-style plum tomatoes,
drained and coarsely chopped
1 1/2 cups heavy cream (I've also used half & half)
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 tablespoons minced fresh basil
Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook pasta in boiling water for 8 to
10 minutes, or until al dente; drain and set aside. Heat oil in a large, skillet over medium heat. Cook sausage and pepper flakes until sausage is evenly brown. Stir in onion and garlic, cook until onion is tender. Add tomatoes, half & half, and salt. Simmer until sauce thickens, about 10 minutes. Stir cooked pasta into sauce, and heat through. Sprinkle with basil and serve.
Thanks Lumps! I'm going to make that Wednesday night. Oh, and is that red pepper a red bell pepper or some other kind of hot pepper?

Lumps, I'm making the TT casserole tonight and I realized that it says 1/4 flat leaf parsley. Is this 1/4 cup or 1/4 of the bunch you buy from the grocery store?
Sorry Bobby, but you can't really screw up, I use 1/4 of the bunch.

Don't freak out at the title of this recipe.I promise you won't taste the pumpkin in it. It just adds a really thick, creamy texture to it and is SO delicious! Most people look at me weird when I say what I make it with, but then they taste it and LOVE it

1 TBSP chili powder
1 tsp ground cumin
1/2 tsp black pepper
Sautee onion and garlic in some oil on med-high heat for 5-7 minutes (or until tender), stirring frequently. Add turkey; cook until browned. Add remaining ingredients and stir really well. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer on low COVERED for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally.
I like to top this with some shredded mozzerella. You can use it to dip his tortilla chips in, its that thick and GOOD!
