Shrimp and Sausage Farfalle

  • Sharebar

Sometimes, when I run out of ideas on what to cook for dinner, I just do a quick look in the kitchen cabinets and fridge, and try to whip up something with whatever that caught my eyes. So on that particular evening, the farfalle pasta caught my attention, and I started to scout for something that would go well with it. Thankfully, there were some huge prawns in the freezer, and a couple of sausages so that’s my inspiration for the night - Shrimp and Sausage Farfalle.

Easy peasy Shrimp and Sausage Farfalle

It was the first time I cooked farfalle, which is basically a bow-tie cut shape pasta with a slightly thicker texture. I usually use Barilla pasta which has been consistent in giving my al-dente pasta if I cook according to the duration specified on the box. For farfalle, the instructions were to cook it in boiling water for 10 minutes, which is a few more than required for the usual spaghetti.

Ingredients:

  • 160g farfalle
  • 8 fresh shrimps
  • 4 sausages
  • 4 cloves garlic
  • 200g Tomato pasta sauce
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • 3 tbsp Olive oil

Steps:

1. Bring to boil a pot of water enough to cover your pasta, about 1.5-2litre.

2. Add 2 tsp of salt into the boiling water before soaking the farfalle in it.

3. Cook for the required time stated on your brand of pasta (for Barilla, it’s 10 minutes).

4. Drain the water and add in 2 tsp of salt and 2 tbsp of olive oil into the pasta and give it a good stir. Set aside.

5. Heat up a frying pan with 1 tbsp of olive oil.

6. Add in the chopped garlic and saute until slightly brown.

7. Add in the prawns and sausage slices and fry for 2-3 minutes.

8. When prawns are almost cooked, add in the tomato pasta sauce and continue stirring.

9. Season with some salt and pepper.

10. Remove from heat once the sauce starts bubbling.

11. Pour the mixture into the farfalle and give it a good mix.

12. Plate the farfalle and enjoy while it’s hot!

    I sometimes shell my prawns before cooking, but I realize that prawns with shells impart more flavour into the dishes! It’s not that I’m lazy, I swear! :)
