Sweet and Creamy Sausage and Pea Pasta Romano

Monica Keleher


This is a great spring pasta. Perfect for the spring peas. This is a huge hit with my boys and one of my ex husbands favorite food ever! I know he misses it! lol. Anyway, it is really easy and packed with flavor, I hope you try it and comment, and love it as much as we do. My 6 year old, who is tough to please said it is pretty good, my 16 year old eats thirds! Let me know what you think,
