Farfalle Carbonaro with Sausage

Joanne Bellezza-Loughlin


I usually make Carbonaro with thin spaghetti and bacon but decided to try it with sausage. I love to change things up. This came out great. A nice light pasta dish. Italian food at its best!!! Enjoy with a salad and italian bread!
NOTE: I am not one for measuring so amounts are approximate.
