Creamy Sausage & Pasta Skillet with Balsamic Reduction

Creamy Sausage & Pasta Skillet with Balsamic Reduction
You Need:
3 sweet sausage links
3/4 box pasta (ziti pref)
2 cups beef broth
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
1 cup sour cream
1/4 red pepper flakes
1/2 tsp fennel seeds
1/2 tsp onion powder
1/4 tsp white pepper
cornstarch mixed into a little water

Directions: Cook the pasta according to directions on box. Drain. While the pasta is cooking- prepare the rest.

Remove the sausage from the casings & crumble into a skillet. Add the fennel seeds & brown on medium heat. Add the broth, balsamic, white pepper, onion powder & red pepper flakes & simmer on medium heat until reduced by 1/2.

Once reduced, stir in the sour cream. Simmer for another 3-5 min & stream in cornstarch (to preferred thickness).

Stir until thickened. Add the pasta & mix well.

This is super easy & comes together really quickly. It's something i like to make on Sunday & save for a meal during the week. I simply cook it all in one skillet & pop the skillet in the fridge. Then i can simply re-heat it on the stove (and if it's a little dry i add about 1/4 cup cream)

Bon appetite.
Pin It!
