Single digit nights

Single digit nights. Yuck. Hearty hunky food. Yum. 
Hunky food is  mixture of immigrant ingredients.  o ne of my favorites is a very quick, easy meal of smoked sausage & lemon pasta. Brown precooked,smoked sausage in olive oil and garlic. Set aside. Boil 1/2 pound of whole wheat penne , drain and toss with 1/4 cup Hellman's canola mayonnaise,( you know, the kind the immigrants brought over) 1.5 tsp. coarse cracked black pepper, 2 TBS. fresh squeezed lemon, 2 TBS sundried tomato bits, salt to taste. Mix sliced sausage into pasta mixture and place in bake safe dish. Place in  350 oven, covered for 20 mins. Lay out on platter and garnish with fresh zest.
I serve with extra fresh lemon slices on the side for those who like to control their own tang.   Kitty on the quilt courtesy of my little Fiddle, who waited patiently on the couch for sausage and pasta leftovers.
