Pasta, Sausage and Peas
  • Time: 30 minutes
  • Complexity: easy

Pasta, Sausage and Peas

I love my one-pot recipes and even though I needed a pan to boil the pasta there was no need for a colander nor a platter or bowl to serve the dish.  My beautiful pan served as a perfect serving dish! All of my dried herbs are from Simply Organic!

I used 2 hot and 2 sweet chicken sausage which added amazing flavor to the sauce!  You can also just add the frozen peas into the hot sauce!  This is a 30 minute meal perfect for a family of 4.  

When we enjoy pasta from a box there is only one I will serve my family (and myself). It has to be DeCecco Pasta!  

Tip: You can add in onion, peppers, zucchini or any other vegetables you have handy in the refrigerator.  Go ahead clean out that crisper draw and make this a hearty family meal!

If you love this recipe but don't want to use pasta!  Take a spaghetti squash and poke about 10 holes using a long metal skewer.  Put in the microwave for 10 minutes.  Let cool, slice, remove seeds then take a fork and add strands into the sauce.  Paleo dinner served...

This was actually the first time I made peanut brittle.  I thought these would go well in my cooking tins!  It's really easy to make just don't leave the stove.  This was my second batch as I went down stairs to move the clothes from the washer and dryer.  Not a great idea!!  (thank god for candles)

Pork Belly Tacos with Steamed Semi-homemade Buns

When we were in Germany this past October I brought back Sausages and Pork Belly.  I used the veal sausages a while ago and decided to use the pork belly to make tacos. I remember the steamed buns we had in Germany were amazing but I don't have all of the ingredients and a steamer.  So I thought about being creative and it really worked!  Glenn thought I made them from scratch - I may or may not have told him how they were really made...
