Sausage Skillet Pasta

Sausage Skillet Pasta

This Italian sausage recipe gives a different kick to the traditional pasta recipes. It can be used as a side dish or full meal. The possibilities are endless, this is a recipe you can make your own. I added black olive to this along with red pepper and onion. Other options could be mushrooms, green pepper, green olive…anything you want!

I chose corkscrew and bowtie pasta, which turned out to be a great combination. Penne pasta would also be a good alternative to try out. This is a very easy recipe and if you love Italian dressing, this is for you. I love how unique this pasta dish is, it allows your creative cooking skills to take over and improvise!
