Santa Fe Pasta

1 Box Mini Bow-tie (Farfalle) Pasta, cooked al dente 
1 pound Ground Spicy Turkey Sausage, scrambled & cooked
1 Green Bell Pepper, cut into strips & sautéed 
1 Can White Northern Beans (or black beans), strained & rinsed 
1 Can Chile Mexican Style Diced Tomatoes, strained 
3/4 Packet Taco Seasoning Packet
1 Cup Heavy Whipping Cream
1 Tbs. Janes Crazy Mixed Up Lime Salt & Pepper
1 Cup Cheddar Cheese, shredded

Optional add ins: Olives, Onion, other color peppers, whatever else you like

Cook pasta according to directions on box, but add about 1 tablespoon of table salt to the water before boiling). 

De-case (peel) the sausage from the casings if needed, scramble in a saucepan over med heat until cooked through (about 10 min). Strain meat, getting rid of any excess fat/juices. 

Using the empty pan that the sausage was made in, sauté green pepper strips until edges start to black. 

Combine everything into a large empty pot and keep covered on the lowest setting for about 1/2 after everything is together to get the flavors to mix.



  1. Looks tasty! Good luck with your blog! You will have a ton of fun and meet great people! :)

  2. This is awesome! I hate trying recipes from books that end up being a waste of time and money. So I love getting recipes from people that have tried it and think it's good. It looks really good too!
