Farfalle with Peas and Sausage


For the Pasta:

  • 1 pound Farfalle or Bow Tie pasta
  • 4 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 0.5 pound sweet sausage (removed from the casing)
  • 28 ounces crushed tomatoes
  • 0.5 cup white wine
  • 1 medium onion
  • 16 ounces frozen peas (thawed)
  • 1.5 cup grated Parmigiano Reggiano cheese
  • salt and pepper to taste


Add the oil to a large sauté pan and sauté the onion for about 4-5 minutes until soft over a medium flame.

Add the sausage and brown for about 3-4 minutes. Break up the pieces with a wooden spoon.

Add the wine and reduce for about 2-3 minutes or until you no longer smell alcohol.

Add the tomatoes, peas, salt, pepper and simmer for 10-12 minutes.

Cook the pasta until very al dente and add it to the sauce. Toss together for 1-2 minutes.

Turn off the heat and add the cheese. Toss together allowing the residual heat of the pan melt the cheese.

Serve in warm bowls with extra grated cheese on top!
