I may have mentioned this once or twice before, but, I’m always on the search for quick and easy meals that flavorful, don’t require a slew of ingredients and gives me enough leftovers for a few days. This pasta dish checks all of those boxes.
I started by cooking the pasta. Then, I sautéed garlic, browned the sausage, added frozen peas and finally heavy cream and butter. After bringing it to a boil I added in the pasta and that was it. You can’t top something as simple as that.
Rigatoni with Sausage & Peas
1 pound rigatoni
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 garlic clove, minced
1 pound sweet Italian sausage meat or sausages with casings removed
12 ounces frozen green peas
1 1/2 cups heavy cream
4 tablespoons butter
Bring a large pot of salted water to boil, add pasta and cooking for 8 to 10 minutes, until al dente and then drain.
In a large skillet heat oil over medium heat and sauté garlic. Add the sausage and brown. Then add the green peas and simmer for 5 minutes. Slowly add the heave cream and butter and bring to a slight boil. Cook for 5 minutes and then toss with cooked pasta and top with parmesan cheese.
