I'm going to start featuring more recipes from my big ol' binder of recipes from my pre-blogging days. There's some good stuff in there!
Like this Honey Sausage Pasta. It's one of my favorite pasta dishes, ever. Simple, simple, simple and delicious.
Honey Sausage Pasta
adapted from - J.M. Hirsch, Associated Press
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon chopped fresh rosemary leaves
12-ounce package sausage, cut into 1-inch pieces (or bulk sausage)
1/2 pound fresh pasta, or 1 pound dried - fettuccine, linguine, and spaghetti all work here
2 tablespoons honey
1 cup grated Parmesan cheese
Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
Bring a large pot of water to a boil.
Meanwhile, in a large skillet over medium-high heat combine the oil and rosemary. When the oil is hote, add the sausage, and cook until browned.
Once the water has come to a boil, add salt and pasta and cook according to package directions.
While the pasta cooks, add the honey to the sausage and cook, stirring constantly, until it bubbles and thickens.
Once the pasta has cooked, reserve about 1/4 cup cooking water, then drain the pasta. Add the pasta and the reserved cooking water to the skillet and toss to coat. Add the cheese and toss again. Season to tast with salt and pepper.
Makes 4 servings.
