Recipe Name: Colin Mochrie's Spicy Sausage Farfalle
Types: Pasta
Pictures: Yes
Prep Time: like not even 10 minutes
Cook Time: 15 minutes
Servings: 4

(Serves 4)


2 tbsp olive oil
1 lb spicy Italian sausage, casings removed (I used mild Italian sausage and it tasted great!)
1 cup chopped onion
3 garlic cloves, minced
1 can crushed tomatoes
1/2 cup whipping cream
1 lb farfalle (bow-tie pasta) [I used cracked-pepper flat noodles]
1/2 cup chopped fresh basil
freshly grated pecorino romano cheese

1. Heat oil in heavy large skillet over medium-high heat. Add sausage and saute until no longer pink, breaking up with back of fork, about 5 minutes. Add onion and garlic; saute until onion is tender and sausage is browned, about 3 minutes longer. Add tomatoes and cream. Reduce heat to low and simmer until sausage mixture thickens, about 3 minutes. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

2. Meanwhile, cook pasta in large pot of boiling salted water until tender but still firm to bite. Drain, reserving 1 cup of the pasta water. Return pasta to the pot. Add sausage mixture and toss over medium-low heat until sauce coats pasta, adding reserved cooking liquid by 1/4 cupfuls if mixture is dry.

3. Transfer pasta to serving dish. Sprinkle with basil. Serve cheese as a side garnish. And serve!

This was REALLY fast and easy to make.  I blended the onions *hates onions* and tomatoes for a more sause-y texture and garanished with parasam (I'm too lazy to figure out the correct spelling).

Everyone liked it!
