Recipe for family meals :

Solo Sausage and Pasta Medley

This is another recipe from Bill Hilbrich from Saint Cloud, Minnesota. If you would like to know a little bit more about Bill have a look at his Bio page - click here.

Bill says: "This quick Italian Style dish will provide a nice meal for one, or with a green salad, a light lunch for two. I found pre-cooked Italian sausage packaged for use on homemade pizza in a grocery store, but uncooked links or bulk sausage could also be cooked in advance and add to this colorful dish".


1/3 lb cooked Italian sausage (cooked weight)
6 ounces dry pasta (Farfalle or Bow tie is nice)
1/3 cup green bell peppers
1/3 cup onions
1 clove garlic, sliced thin
1 (8 ounce) can tomato sauce
1 teaspoon dried basil
2 tablespoons olive oil
parmesan cheese

  • Place pasta in 2 quarts of salted water and cook until soft, which should take about 10 to 12 minutes.
  • Chop the pepper and onions into half inch pieces and sauté in olive oil.
  • After 5 minutes, add the garlic, basil, and the tomato sauce and simmer until it starts to thicken.
  • If the sauce become to thick, add a little of the water from the pasta.
  • Add the pre-cooked sausage to the vegetable and sauce mixture, and stir over low heat while waiting until the pasta is done.
  • Add drained pasta to the pan, stir, check to see if salt is needed, and plate.
  • Serve with grated parmesan cheese.
