Pasta and Sausage skillet, and my Mom

I made a simple dinner based on a recipe on the back of the sausage package. I like sausage a little, but it normally gives me really bad heartburn. I choose a sweet sausage to use, hoping that would not affect me as much. I boiled up a short pasta to al dente. While that was boiling I cooked the sausage in a little water in the cast iron pan. I added some cut up onion, a little garlic and a green onion-funny how you don't really see them in the photos though. Hmmmm. I added half a jar of spaghetti sauce that I had in the fridge, stirred in the cooked pasta, and let it simmer about 5 minutes to meld the flavors.


Dude loved it as evidenced by the photo! He ate the rest the next day for lunch.



I'm also including a picture of my Mom. I found my old neighbor on Facebook and he has checked out my blog-hi Damon! I had a picture of my Dad and Step-mom earlier, so I said I would post one of Mom too. He hasn't seen her in years. Well, he hasn't seen me in 25, so it has been longer since he has seen her I'm sure!



Hope to be back to a little more normal coming up this week. More cooking and baking. Of course, it is suppose to be really hot here in Minnesota this week, so we'll see about the baking! I was either watching TV or trolling blogs, but somewhere I saw someone doing something with pierogis and sausage. I bought some of each today and am going to try combining those. I also have the last of my rhubarb I want to do something with. I borrowed some cookbooks from the library and have found some yummy stuff in there too. Many plans, many plans.

This dish looks yummy. Seems like Dude enjoyed it. Bet he and my FFH would get along so lets figure the halfway point between there and NJ, ok?

That dish would be a HUGE hit at my house!

I do something similar, it's one of my girlfriends favorite things. Heh, she always makes me use sweet sausage. Not because of heartburn, but because she's a heat wuss.

Donna you are on!

Bob, I am a heat wuss too, but the heartburn really does me in

Spryte-was it you that had something with pierogis? I am on my way over to your place to check....

Tamilyn, Glad you stopped by so I could find your blog. Love your family and midwest roots. I am from Michigan originally. Please visit again and I will too. The pasta looks great.

Tami,

Thank you for posting photos of your mom, it was good to see her and everyone else again. . . I guess I'm getting sentimental in my old age. Speaking of which, I'm flattered you mentioned me in your blog, however, in the future, I would appreciate being refered to as "your FORMER neighbor" NOT "your OLD neighbor"! Besides, if memory serves, you're older than I:)
