I came up with this recipe when I didn't have any beef in the house. Kielbasa simmered in a tomato sauce with bow ties. It's great served with rolls.
INGREDIENTS (for 5 servings):
- 3 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 onion, chopped
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 pound kielbasa
- 2 (14.5 ounce) cans peeled and diced tomatoes
- 1 (8 ounce) can tomato sauce
- salt and pepper to taste
- 1 (8 ounce) package tri-colored farfalle (bow tie) pasta
- 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese, or to taste
Heat the oil in a large saucepan over medium high heat. Stir in the onion and garlic and saute for 5 minutes, or until tender. Then stir in the kielbasa and saute for 5 more minutes.
Pour in the tomatoes, tomato sauce, salt and pepper to taste and the pasta. Mix all together well, making sure the mixture is wet enough to cook the pasta. If necessary, mix in some water.
Cover, reduce heat to low and simmer for 20 minutes, or until the pasta is tender.
