  • ½ teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 8 ounces farfalle pasta (bowties)*

  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • ¼ cup Parmesan cheese (more for serving)
  • 1 cup ricotta cheese

Instructions

  2. Finish cooking the sausage with the garlic.
  3. Stir in tomato sauce and seasonings (if sauce isn’t seasoned) to the cooked sausage.
  4. Add in 2 cups of water and pasta to the skillet and bring to a boil.
  5. Once it’s boiling, reduce heat to a simmer and cover.
  6. Cook until pasta is tender, about 12 additional minutes (this will vary depending on the pasta you use).
  7. When pasta is cooked, remove from heat.
  8. Stir in mozzarella and combine.
  9. Top with small mounds of ricotta cheese and Parmesan, cover and wait a couple of minutes for ricotta to heat and melt in.
  10. Serve immediately with additional Parmesan cheese if desired.

Notes

*I personally use coconut oil but you can use your favorite cooking oil. Use bowtie pasta or whatever shapes you have in your pantry. This recipe doesn’t work well with spaghetti or angel hair pasta. You can use gluten free pasta as well. Cooking times will vary so please check your box.
