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,

  1. Put a large pot with water on the stove and bring to a boil, season the water with salt and add the pasta. Cook until al dente
  2. Chop the onion
  3. melt some butter in a saute pan and add the chopped onion. Cook the onion until they are goldenly caramelized. Remove them from the pan and set aside

  5. return onions to pan and combine with the sausage meat.
