    Preparing Bowtie Pasta

    Pasta for dinner? Who doesn’t like that? It’s quick, simple, and well-liked by practically everyone in the household. But when it can be produced entirely in one pot, it brings extra joy to the home chef. That’s why this bowtie pasta dish is so versatile. One of the greatest evening dinners that can be cooked in under 30 minutes, it has Italian sausage, broccoli, a creamy sauce, and lots of parmesan cheese.

    What do you name the kind of pasta that resembles a bow?

    Bowtie pasta may sometimes be seen labelled as “farfalle” on the packaging. The pasta takes its name from the Italian word for butterfly, thus the name.

    What is the function of farfalle pasta?

    Whether you’re making a pasta dish, salad, or soup, farfalle pasta is a great choice because of its adaptability. It’s great when cooked and topped with a basic tomato sauce or a sauce made from ground beef. Its form allows pasta salad’s herbs, vegetables, and cheese to absorb all their flavour. Even better, it’s the ideal accompaniment to a hearty bowl of pasta Fagioli or any hearty Italian soup.

    Besides spaghetti, what else can I use in place of farfalle?

    Shells, orecchiette, micro penne, and mezzo (“half”) rigatoni are all great alternatives to farfalle and bowtie pasta because of their small size and bite.

    When should farfalle be cooked?

    Farfalle pasta is quite versatile; it may be boiled and served with a traditional pasta sauce, as in spaghetti and meatballs, or it can be cooked and baked, like in baked ziti. The bowtie pasta in this dish is prepared using just one pot. Brown the sausage first in a big saucepan. Once it’s browned, take it out of the pan and set it aside on a dish. To season the remaining oil, add garlic and fry for a minute or two. Then, to create a delicious cooking liquid, dump in the pasta, chicken broth, water, salt, pepper, and oregano all at once. As the pasta simmers, feel free to give it the odd stir. The starch released from the bowties will both cook the pasta and thicken the sauce. You won’t have to use a separate pot to cook the noodles.


    • Two tablespoons of olive oil.
    • The casings have been removed from 1 pound of mild Italian pork sausage.
    • Three minced garlic cloves.
    • Bowtie spaghetti, pound.
    • 3 cups of chicken broth.
    • An equal measure of fresh and dried oregano, or 1 teaspoon.
    • Suggested Measurement: 1 Teaspoon Salt.
    • Black pepper, ground, 1/2 teaspoon
    • Four cups of broccoli florets, tiny (from 1 8-oz. piece of broccoli).
    • Sun-dried tomatoes, julienned, 1/2 cup (after oil has been drained).
    • Approximately a third of a cup of full-fat cream.
    • Parmesan cheese, grated, 1/2 cup plus extra for serving.
    • The juice of two lemons is measured in tablespoons (from 1 lemon).
    • A sprinkle of red pepper flakes for flavouring (optional).


    1. Prepare a medium-sized pot for heating over low to medium heat. First, sauté the sausage in olive oil. The sausage has to be cooked for approximately 6 minutes while being broken up with a wooden spoon until it is golden brown and no longer pink within. Transfer the sausage to a plate using a slotted spoon.
    2. You may add the garlic cloves when the heat is turned down to medium. Set timer for 1 minute.
    3. Bring to a simmer the pasta, broth, 2 cups of water, oregano, salt, and pepper. Bring to a simmer over medium-low heat and whisk periodically to avoid sticking for 5 minutes.
    4. Insert the broccoli and stir. Cook for 5 minutes with the lid on, tossing once halfway through, until the pasta and broccoli are cooked.
    5. Take the lid off the cooking saucepan. Combine the sausage you set aside with the sun-dried tomatoes and cream—heat for approximately a minute, or until piping hot.
    6. Turn off the heat and mix in the lemon juice and parmesan. More parmesan cheese and red chilli flakes, if desired, may be sprinkled on top before serving.
