Another Whole Foods Rave!

Thanks to the commenter - I've entered this in the Presto Pasta Night roundup. Thank you to Ruth at Once Upon a Feast and Abby at Eat The Right Stuff.

I grabbed this recipe off of the Whole Foods website and we adored this recipe. First off it was so easy to make. Secondly, it was so delicious as well - even the leftovers were tasty!

We used fresh roma tomatoes and basil from our garden. I used ground sausage as well. Otherwise it was the same thing and it was surely delicious!

Farfalle with Hot Italian Sausage, Tomatoes and Basil

Hot Italian sausage, sweet tomatoes and fresh basil are tossed with bowtie pasta in this easy, flavor-packed summer dinner. Try this recipe with classic Italian pork sausage or leaner chicken or turkey sausage if you prefer.

Serves 6 to 8

3/4 pound farfalle (bowtie) pasta
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
1 pound hot Italian sausage
3 tablespoons chopped garlic
1 bunch basil, leaves torn into pieces
1 pound cherry or grape tomatoes, halved
4 ounces Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese, shaved or shredded
1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
Sea salt and pepper

Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil and cook pasta until al dente. Drain and toss in olive oil. Set aside. Meanwhile, preheat a large skillet. Squeeze sausage from casing into pan, crumbling it into small pieces. Add garlic and cook until sausage is browned and cooked through, 7 to 10 minutes. Toss cooked sausage with pasta, basil, tomatoes, cheese, lemon juice, salt and pepper. Serve warm or at room temperature.
