Drunken Sausage and Pasta
Cook time
Total time
Serves: 4
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 package hot turkey sausage (4-5 sausages)
  • 3 cloves of garlic, chopped
  • 1 jumbo onion, thinly sliced
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • pinch red pepper flakes (or more if you want, like me)
  • 1 box (16 oz.) whole wheat spaghetti
  • 1 12 oz. bottle of beer (I used a leftover cheap beer and it still tasted good!)
  1. Pour your olive oil into a pan and heat it over medium. Saute your onion, garlic, and sausages over the medium heat for 8 minutes. Make sure to turn over your sausages halfway through.
  2. Add the salt, pepper, and red pepper flakes to taste. I did a pinch of each and worked my way up.
  3. Add your beer, cover everything, and reduce the liquid down to little less than half on high heat for 8 minutes. Make sure to flip your sausages halfway through. Boil the pasta while you do this.
  4. Serve yours sausages and onions over the pasta. Make sure you get juices over everything, too.
