Well, this recipe fit the bill since it’s not only super easy to make, but also amazingly delicious. It’s perfect for a weeknight dinner, you can have this ready in less than 30 minutes!!
I usually don’t cook pasta more than once per week, but when I do I like to try new ways to serve it. This time I decided to I crank things up a notch by adding Bob Evans Original Sausage. At first, I was a bit hesitant to add it because, as you know, my kids are super picky eaters. Any change of color, or texture, in their food turns on the alarms and they shoot their mouths immediately. Thanks goodness that didn’t happen this time. They loved the “creamy pasta” – as they named it.
This recipe is comforting! The sausage gives the dish meatiness, and just a bit of spiciness. The sauce is creamy and tangy … just perfection! I use a pinch of red pepper flakes in the sauce to give it a little “zing“– nothing overwhelming! You can add more or leaving it out entirely depending on your family’s spice tolerance.
