Italian Sausage with Bowties
1 lb bulk Italian Sausage
1 box bowtie pasta
2 cans Italian style stewed tomatoes, drained and chopped
1/2 cup chopped onion
2 cloves of garlic
1/2 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp dried basil
1 1/2 cups half & half
Cook the pasta according to the package directions. While that cooks, brown the sausage, onion, garlic, red pepper flakes in a large skillet. Drain and rinse under hot water to remove the extra fat. Return to the skillet and add the tomatoes and half & half, salt and basil. Bring it to a boil, then simmer it until the sauce reduces a bit. Drain the pasta and put it back into the cooking pot. Add in the sauce and stir. Serve with Parmesan cheese.
A fresh Caesar salad and garlic bread is excellent along with this meal.
