This yummy pasta recipe is so delicious and easy to make – you can use it for a weeknight dinner! I often use packaged Polish sausage in quick pasta recipes and stir fries because it is so easy to use. Packaged sausage is already cooked, so all you need to do is chop it and heat it up on a frying pan. Not having to deal with raw meat is so pleasant and is a great time saver!
In this simple recipe, farfalle (bow-tie) pasta is mixed with cooked sausage, mushrooms, zucchini and tomato sauce. This makes such a hearty and tasty dinner!
