Farfalle with Sausage, Tomatoes and Cream

Farfalle with Sausage, Tomatoes and Cream

Great dish, fast and a little spicy. Reduce crushed red pepper as needed to achieve the right hotness for your taste.

  • Yield: 6 servings


  • 2 tablespoon(s) olive oil
  • 1 pound(s) italian sweet sausage casings removed
  • 1/2 teaspoon(s) dried crushed red pepper
  • 1 cup(s) chopped onion
  • 3 clove(s) garlic minced
  • 1 can(s) 28 oz. crushed tomatoes
  • 1/2 cup(s) whipping cream
  • 1 pound(s) farfalle (bow-tie pasta)
  • 1/2 cup(s) chopped fresh basil packed
  • grated Pecorino Romano cheese


Heat oil in large skillet over medium high heat

Add sausage and crushed red pepper. Saute until sausage is no longer pink, breaking into chunks, about 5 min.

Add onion and garlic; sauté 3 minutes.

Add tomatoes and cream. Reduce heat to low; simmer until mixture thickens, about 3 minutes.

Season with salt and pepper.

Meanwhile, cool pasta in large pot of boiling salted water until tender but still firm to bite. Drain, reserving 1 cup cooking liquid. Return pasta to same pot.

Add sausage mixture to pasta; toss over medium heat, adding reserved cooking liquid by 1/4 cupfuls if dry. Transfer pasta to serving dish. Sprinkle with basil. Serve, passing cheese separately.
