Creamy Tomato Penne
1 lb Italian sausage (links or ground)
1 lb penne pasta
8 oz ball of fresh, whole-milk mozzarella
1 jar marinara sauce (or homemade)
1/4-1/2 tsp red pepper flakes
1/2 cup cream
3/4 cup of freshly grated parmesan cheese
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Start water heating for pasta, add about a teaspoon of salt. While waiting for the water to boil, crumble your sausage into a large pan, sprinkle with red pepper flakes, and brown.
All this from a few refrigerator remnants that inspired me. Perhaps it will inspire you too!
