Today I wanted to show you my new dish: Pasta with sausages. I am sure you and your kids will love this one. This dish is quick and easy to prepare and it is suitable for kids with allergies to cow milk and eggs.
Pasta with sausages
- 6 pork sausages (~400 g), I use raw pork sausages, but you can use others, your favourite ones;
- 400 – 500 g penne pasta;
- 2 tbsp canola oil;
- 1 medium onion;
- 2 garlic cloves;
- 1/2 yellow bell pepper;
- 1/2 red bell pepper;
- 1/2 green bell pepper;
- 3-4 tbsp fresh or frozen peas, you can also use snow peas;
- 2-3 tbsp fresh or frozen corn;
- green onion, optional;
- handful of fresh chopped parsley or basil;
- salt and pepper to taste.
Set a big pot of salted water to cook pasta.
If your sausages are raw, like mine, fry them on a pan over low heat on both sides. If your sausages are not raw, skip this step and start cutting the sausages into 5 mm slices.
While the water for the pasta is heating up and sausages are frying slowly, prepare vegetables.
If your water is already boiling, cook pasta according to instructions on the package.
Add the peppers, peas and corn to the onion and fry them for 3 to 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. The time of cooking will depend on how soft you like the vegetables, and how big are the chunks. I do not recommend frying vegetables for too long, they will lose their beautiful colour. Season the vegetables with salt and pepper at the end of frying.
Add the vegetables and sausages to the drained pasta. Do not add the grease from the sausages. Heat the pot for about 1-2 minutes on a very low heat stirring the whole thing. Season to taste. Do not forget to add chopped parsley or basil. If you do not have allergy problems you can add Parmesan cheese.
