Dinner concoction

I had a busy, busy weekend in Vancouver this weekend. The trip was really for my son and daughter in law. They bought a lap top and some dressers which doesn't sound like much and we all thought it would be easy and fast but throw in busy stores, bad weather and traffic, and well it took much longer than we thought but we had lots of fun.

I got home mid afternoon and after a long walk to stretch my legs and clear my head I had dinner to think about, this is the dinner concoction I came up with and it was very easy and delicious.

I fried up some Italian sausages I bought from Bosa, five to be exact, three hot and two mild. Once they were cooked I sliced them and put them aside. I drained the fat from the pan and added some peperonata I made in the summer, added some frozen tomatoes, placed the sausages back in the sauce and gently simmered the sauce. In the meantime cook up some pasta, any shape will do but cut pasta, like rigatoni, works best.

Toss the sauce into the pasta and top with parmigiano and together with salad and a glass of wine, Sunday night dinner was amazing.

That does look good. When I go out to eat at an Italian restaurant I always get sausage and peppers. Sound a bit similar. - Margy

I can just about taste it. Look great.

Wow I made something very similar recently - but no peperonata - I sauteed some hot Italian sausages, a sauteed chicken breast I had to use up, pasta sauce, cubes of cheddar, cubes of cream cheese & cooked pasta and then popped it all in the oven to heat through and melt.

Your swap package is on it's way :)

That looks so yummie!! I noticed on the weekend how busy it was getting at the stores...I really don't like shopping from now until the middle of January. I don't do well in crowds. Glad you had a fun time.

That looks like something my husband would make. It looks very good.
