Tagliatelle with Spicy Sausage, Courgette, and Petit Pois


Pasta is easy and fast to prepare and everyone loves it. As you may have guessed that my love for pasta is as great as noodles! There are many sauce variations. My all time favourites are tomato sauce and white sauce. Ingredients wise, I like seafood, vegetables, mushrooms, bacon and of course sausages!

Pasta comes in different colours and shapes. If you ask me how many? I really don’t know the answer. Here is the good source of infomation – List of Pasta.

I have made tagliatelle with spicy sausage, courgette, and petit pois for the Presto Pasta Nights, which is hosted by Soy and Pepper this week. It is my first time to join this event and I am quite excited about it.

Is it spicy you may ask because of spicy sausage? No, not at all. In fact, it makes a real difference in eating sausages. Tagliatelle with spicy sausage, courgette, and petit pois is very easy to make. Apart from cooking the pasta, the other task is to cook up the ingredients. It’s then good to eat.

This dish is suitable to be eaten as dinner also for lunchbox next day! This is what I usually do for cooked dishes – I cook extra portions so that I can bring to work for lunch. So, there’s no chance of saying ‘not sure what to have for lunch!’
