Bowties & Italian Sausage Haiku: "Taste was way too 'beige', no sauce to cling to pasta, would need additions." I made this as directed (except used a frozen bag of tri-color bell pepper/onion blend), and we felt that the bowties tasted just like ... bowties, they didn't really absorb flavor, or allow any of the flavors to adhere to their surface. And cutting Italian sausage links into bite-sized pieces is very time-consuming; I would recommend browning the links whole, then removing to cut, b/c I think it took me longer than the suggested prep-time to cut them, even having removed the casings as well. The 1/2 tsp of Italian seasoning and sausage just didn't provide enough flavor for us, so we used crushed red pepper, parmesan and salt at the table. My husband said "this 'feels' like a healthy meal, but I don't think it really is, so it's fooling me into eating more than I should", whereas my daughter said "it needs tomato sauce." I think I agree w/ both of them. Enjoyable to try, but not necessarily one that I'd make again.
