Here is another tasty looking recipe from my Taste of Home magazine and will be dinner tonight.
1-1/2 pounds hot or sweet Italian sausage links
1 medium onion, chopped
1 medium green pepper, cut into strips
1 garlic clove, minced
1 can (28 ounces) diced tomatoes, undrained
6 cups water
2 to 2-1/2 cups uncooked bow tie pasta
1 tablespoon sugar
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
2 teaspoons chicken bouillon granules
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon dried basil
1 teaspoon dried thyme
Remove casings from sausage; cut into 1-in. pieces. In a Dutch oven, brown sausage over medium heat. Remove sausage with a slotted spoon; drain, reserving 2 tablespoons drippings.
Saute the onion, green pepper and garlic in drippings until tender.
Return sausages to the pan; stir in the remaining ingredients. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat. Simmer, uncovered, for 15-20 minutes or until pasta is tender, stirring occasionally.
Yield: 3 quarts
My notes/substitutions: Instead of water and bouillon granules I will be using chicken stock. Victoria chose to have it with small shells instead of bow ties. I think she is on a shell kick. Who am I to argue?
