PASTA WITH CHICKEN SAUSAGE

Description

pToday , I felt like having pasta for dinner with tons of cheese. Just browsed through the food network site for the recipe . There is always Racheal Ray's 30 minute recipes , bubbly and cheesy like her and ofcourse can be made within 30 minutes. After making a few changes to the original recipe , here is my version of the pasta dish !
Ingredients
1 lb Penne rigate [ i have used ronzoni healthy harvest , whole wheat pasta]
1 lb Chicken sausages [ cooked ]
3 T Olive oil
1 no Onion [ thinly sliced ]
3 no Garlic [ chopped ]
1 cup Chicken stock
1 can Tomato sauce [ 8 oz ]
1 cup Parsely
1 cup Grated parmesan cheese
3 slice Swiss cheese [ any cheese of your choice can be used ]
Salt [ to taste ]
1 cup Mixed vegtables [ i have used mushroom and brocolli stems ]

Instructions

 

 Add 2 cups of water to a pot , when water comes to a boil , salt the water and add the pasta. let ir cook for about 6-7 mins.Drain and keep it aside.

Heat a non-stick pan, add olive oil to it. Add the chopped garlic , onion and saute for 3mins , now add the sausages , pepper powder and saute for 5-6 mins till the sausages are tender and well mixed with onion and garlic.  Now add the vegetables and saute ro 2 mins , then add the chicken stock and let it comes to a boil and all the vegetables are cooked. 

 At this stage add the tomato sauce , pepper powder and salt [ make sure to check for salt before adding , because sausage contains salt ].

when the sauce bubbles , add the pasta and 1/2 of parmesan cheese , parsely and stir. preheat the broiler on high. Transfer the pasta mixture to a broiler safe bowl. Now add the remaining parmesan cheese . cover on top with thin slices of swiss cheese. keep it under the broiler for 2-3 mins till the cheese melts and forms a light brown crust.

Notes

1. Cheese can be any of your choice . I have used two kinds , grated parmesan and sliced swiss cheese.

 2. If you do not have sausages you can used cooked and shredded chicken . 3.While buying sausages from the store , check for the ingredients , most of the sausages contain beef and pork to it.

4.If u do not have seperate broiler dish , you can use the microwave safe bowl and put the pasta in the microwave for 3mns , you will get a nice cheese crust.
