Happy wet Monday! Today's holiday was truly reflected by the weather out. Wet Monday, or Smigus Dyngus is the after party to Easter Sunday. In some countries, Catholic's partake in dousing other people with holy water blessed the day before during Easter mass. Here on the home front the holiday is most celebrated on the East coast. This day is also often used to launch the year's political campaign season. I was doing some food research on the holiday and found out that a teacher at Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology in Terre Haute, Indiana began celebrating Dyngus Day at the request of South Bend students. They provided free Polish sausage for students for students as well as a free concert. All this talk of free sausage has gotten me all worked up. I researched different ways to prepare sausage and here's what I found:
Bowties with Sausage
- 4 cups dried large bowties (farfalle) or 3 cups dried medium shell macaroni (8 oz)
12 oz uncooked spicy italian sausage links
2 medium sweet red bell peppers cut into 3/4" pieces
1/2 c. vegetable broth or beef broth.
1/4 tsp. corse ground black pepper
1/4 cup snipped fresh parsley (optional)
DirectionsStart to finish this takes under 30 mins!
Cook pasta according to box directions. Drain; return pasta to saucepan. cover and keep warm.
Meanwhile, cut sausage into 1 inch pieces. In a Large skillet cook sausage and sweet peppers over medium-high heat until sausage is browned. drain off fat.
stir the broth and black pepper into skillet. bring to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer, uncovered for 5 minutes. Remove from Heat. Pour over pasta; add parsley. Toss gently to coat. transfer to a warm serving dish.
