Finding dinner ideas that warm us up when it’s so cold outside hasn’t always been easy but now that my kids are happy to try new food it’s making family meals a little bit easier. This week we’ve experimented and come up with this creamy pasta sauce with kidney beans and spicy sausages from the local butchers. It only takes 30 minutes to make and we’ve had it with some of our bread machine garlic and cheese bread. Perfect for school nights when we need some comfort food. So I thought I would share with you our delicious Creamy Sausage and Bean recipe.
30 Minutes Sausage Pasta
On some weekday nights, it seems we are all over the place, and unless I’ve thrown together something in the slow cooker we literally have 30 minutes to cook maximum and eat before we have to go or do something.
This Creamy Sausage Pasta is great in the fact that I can cook it whilst the kids do their homework or reading at the kitchen table and keep an eye on them.
I’ve made it a few times now and added cheese to it once for us girls as the boys don’t like it (crazy right) and although I did like the cheese it’s still a delicious creamy pasta without it.
Making Creamy Sausage Pasta with LeftOver Sausage Casserole
If you follow our recipes you will have seen our Slow Cooker Sausage Casserole at the beginning of the month.
Well, this recipe uses the same basic ingredients and to make it even quicker I will freeze half of the slow cooker (it uses 1kg of sausages) and then use it for this recipe.
Just defrost in the fridge overnight and then instead of step 1 in the instructions below warm it up in the frying pan till the sauce starts to sizzle then you can add in the milk and if you want the cheese as well.
