Mom learned this recipe from a friend, and it has become a family favorite!
1 lb. Italian sausage
1 or more varieties pasta noodles
any vegetables or toppings you might like in pasta, such as tomatoes, green peppers, mushrooms, olives, etc.
1 or more varieties of pasta sauce, homemade or from the jar, warmed
Roll the Italian sausage into 1-inch balls and cook thoroughly. (This step can be done even the day before.) Shortly before serving, cook the pasta noodles until done. Have each person assemble in their individual bowl their choice of noodles, the garlic to taste, the pesto to taste, and any vegetables they want. Heat approximately 2 T. of olive oil in a sauté pan. Dump one person’s assembled pasta bowl in the hot oil and sauté for about 5 minutes or until warmed through and mixed well. Remove from the pan and return to the bowl. Top with the pasta sauce of your choice. Eat. Yummy!
