Pasta with Sausage

Original Recipe by Kitchen Groovy
1 box of whole wheat rotini pasta
2 carrots, diced
1 lb. sweet italian sausage, sliced (regular or turkey would work great)
2 1/2 C leftover sauce from Braised Shortribs, hot

Over medium high heat, cook sliced italian sausage on a frying pan until fully cooked. Set aside on a plate lined with a paper towel to absorb any fat.

Cook pasta according to package directions. Add diced carrots to the noodles in the boiling water about 1-2 minutes before the noodles are done cooking.

Drain noodles and carrots. In large serving bowl, combine pasta, carrots and sausage. Add in the heated leftover sauce and combine until well mixed.

Chef's Note: feel free to add what you like to this dish - it's leftovers! I encourage you to add what you like and what you are craving! Brocolli would be a GREAT addition! I only added what was left in my refrigerator! :-)
