Sausage & Bacon Tomato Fusilli

It has been a while since I've posted something about food. Anyway, I decided to cook a very simple pasta for lunch since my Mom and I were fed up of eating some of our local hawker fare. Since my Dad wasn't around, we could experiment on new stuff too. (^^)

The recipe is very simple, the ingredients are as follows:
  1. Pasta Fusilli (spiral pasta) - portion for 2
  2. 2 chicken frankfurters chopped
  3. 4 pieces of back Bacon diced
  4. 2 garlic cloves chopped
  5. 1/2 red onion chopped
  6. Salt & pepper to taste
  7. Oregano (optional)
  8. Chopped parsley (optional)
  9. Presto's Tomato & Mushroom Sauce
  10. Olive oil - A Must!!!
Now, back bacon is not the streaky bacon which people cook for breakfast but the slightly more "meatier" bacon for people who are health conscious. Now, the back bacon does come with some fat and so, best to remove the top layer of fat if you have health issues. If you like a bit of greasy taste, just leave a bit on. :)

The steps are as follows:
  1. Boil some water with salt. Once the water comes to a boil, drop your pasta in.
  2. In a hot pan of medium heat, pour the olive oil and fry up the chopped garlic and onions.
  3. When the garlic and onions start to brown, stir in the chopped bacon and sausages.
  4. When the ingredients have been cooked well, pour in the sauce and stir well. Let it simmer for a while before adding crushed black pepper, oregano(optional) and salt to taste. I usually do not add in extra salt since my pasta has been cooked in salted boiling water and that should have enough flavour.
  5. Once the pasta is cooked, drain and add to the sauce.
  6. Stir well and serve with Parmesan cheese and some chopped parsley.
Easy, right? Anyway, this should be a good recipe for a quick dinner. (^^)

Variations could include adding a touch of cream or Cream of Chicken Soup from Campbell, shave on some cheese and putting it into the oven to make it a pasta bake.

Anyway, here's a look of the yummy stuff I cooked this afternoon. (^.^)

Kekeke, by the way, the yellow stuff on top is the Parmesan cheese. I would recommend getting the better stuff other than usual Kraft Parmesan cheese as it doesn't smell as bad but tastes great!!
