A nice plate of pasta is always welcome, adding sausages to it, makes it even more fun. Last night we just did that. Sausage pasta with peas and tomatoes sauce. Something new as we seldom have mild Italian sausages for dinner, more of a breakfast enjoyment.
I left the casing on and cut the sausages into a 1- 1 1/2 inch chunks. If I had smaller kids at the table I would have cut the sausage to 1 inch, easy to eat and no need to cut them with a knife.
We also use Pomi for a choice for our tomatoes. All the seeds are removed to alleviate the acidity of the tomatoes.
