Bow ties with sweet potatoes and turkey sausage
This recipe is really good, and I'd definitely make it again. The sweet potatoes are really unusual, but yummy.
Bow ties with sweet potatoes and smoked turkey sausage (4 servings)
2 Tbsp. of extra-virgin olive oil
1 onion, halved and thinly sliced
1 sweet potato (1/2 lbs.), peeled, cut in half lengthwise, then cut crosswise into 1/4-inch slices
1/4 cup of water
3-4 sprigs of fresh thyme
1/8 tsp. of ground cayenne
1/2 tsp. of salt
1 1/2 cups canned crushed tomatoes (16-oz)
1/2 lbs. smoked turkey sausage, diced
1/2 lbs. bow tie pasta
In a large skillet, heat the oil over medium heat. Add the onion and sweet potato and cook 5 minutes, or until the onions are soft. Then, add the tomatoes, water, cayenne pepper, and salt. Simmer for 10 minutes, then add the sausage and thyme and cook for 5 minutes longer.
Meanwhile, cook the bow ties according to pasta directions.
Toss the cooked pasta with the sauce and serve and ENJOY :-)!
