Easy Pasta Dinner Recipe
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. Thank goodness, that didn’t happen this time. They loved the “creamy pasta” – as they named it.
Spicy Pasta Dinner
I use a pinch of red pepper flakes in the sauce to give it a little “zing“– nothing overwhelming! You can add more or leave it out entirely depending on your family’s spice tolerance.
