This is a quick and easy recipe that combines the sweet and smokey flavor of Kielbasa or Polish sausage with fresh sauteed vegetables and a tangy tomato sauce served over bow-tie pasta. My kids love it!

  • Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook bow-tie pasta at a boil, stirring occasionally, until cooked through yet firm to the bite, about 12 minutes; drain.

  • Heat oil in the same skillet used for sausage over medium heat; cook and stir onion, zucchini, mushrooms, red bell pepper, and garlic in the hot oil until tender, about 10 minutes. Add cooked sausage, diced tomatoes, tomato sauce, tomato paste, basil, oregano, salt, and black pepper to vegetable mixture; cook until sauce and sausage are heated through, 5 to 10 minutes.

  • Stir pasta into sauce and mix well; top with Parmesan cheese.

Only gave it a three because the sausage added some flavor. Otherwise very boring and bland!! Would not make again. Read More

I was a little leery about trying this recipe since I don't usually prepare kielbasa in a red sauce but I'm glad I gave it a try. It was a hit with my family and we all agreed that the 2nd day leftovers were just as good (if not better). I will definitely make this again. Read More

WOW what a great flavor. I did make a few changes. I got most of it ready and stirred it into a big pot. I also added black olives. I greased up a casserole dish and turned the oven on at 375. I poured it into the casserole dish and added chedder cheese to the top. I baked it for 30 mniutes. Fantastic and will definitely make again. Read More

Sausage Stir-Fry w/ Bow Tie Pasta Haiku: "A keeper indeed. Made mine like a casserole did ahead of time." I didn't change a thing about this recipe other than prepping in advance and putting it in a large round Pyrex dish; w/ a little Parmesan and mozzarella sprinkled on top I put it in oven at 350 for about 25-30 min. just to melt the cheese and re-warm it through. UMMM Wow I know that my method defeated the quick purpose of the "stir-fry" but we really loved this meal! Read More

I took the advice of the reviews and went for more flavor so I omitted the tomato sauce and paste but used diced tomatoes with chilies. Added a cup of heavy cream mushrooms Italian cheese mix red pepper flakes Italian seasoning and seasoning salt instead of regular salt. It was a hit. Read More

I followed the recipe as written except I omitted the mushrooms since I'm not a big mushroom fan. My husband and I thought it had great flavor a nice amount of heat and it was pretty quick and easy to make. I will definitely make this again! Read More

We really liked this. I had a lot of tomatoes so I replaced the diced tomatoes & paste with diced fresh. And I made cauliflower rice instead of pasta. It was a delicious combination. I would definitely make this again. Read More
