Spring Meal Solutions #4: Pesto Sausage & Pasta

This is my own recipe and I think next time I would add some spinach leaves also…sounds yummy and would look amazing.  We love this recipe because it is so full of flavor but does not have a heavy sauce …give it try…ENJOY!

Pesto Sausage & Pasta

1 1/2 lbs. smoked turkey sausage, sliced
1 Tbsp. Roasted Garlic Infused Oil
4-5 Tbsp.Dried Tomato & Garlic Pesto Mix
1/2 cup diced baby carrots
1 (14.5 oz.) cans petite diced tomatoes, undrained
12-16 oz. penne pasta, prepared with 2 T Onion Onion added to water
1 cup grated Parmesan Cheese

In a large skillet, sauté sausage and carrots in Roasted Garlic Infused Oil until sausage is heated thru. Stir in pesto and tomatoes; stir to blend. Heat gently for 5-10 minutes to blend flavors. Add hot prepared pasta to sauce…stir to coat; stir in 3/4 c Parmsesan Cheese, cover with heat off to melt cheese…..use 1/4 c parm cheese to sprinkle on top when serving Makes 4-6 servings.
