Spicy Sausage Bowtie Pasta



Do you ever have one of those days where nothing sounds good for dinner? Well, that's me today. I'm in a bit of a recipe rut and as a food blogger that can definitely be frustrating. I tossed a few ingredients together and came up with this recipe. I wanted to name the recipe Sausage Enchilada Pasta but that just seemed odd. But trust me...the enchilada sauce really works in this recipe. You've got to give it a try. My family loved it!

  1. This looks great! And yes, I sometimes have the feeling like nothing sounds good--it's the worst when you're at the grocery store!
