This is a great tasting, high-fiber pasta dish with lots of fresh veggies. I cooked it for my family and co-workers and they absolutely loved it!

Recipe Ingredients

  • 16 ounces multigrain farfalle (bow-tie) pasta
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 pound mild Italian sausage, diced
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 2 ½ cups chicken broth
  • 1 small red bell pepper, chopped
  • 2 cups cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1 medium zucchini, thinly sliced
  • 1 ½ cups grated Parmesan cheese
  • ¼ cup butter
  • 1 teaspoon adobo seasoning
  • ½ teaspoon dried oregano
  • ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper

Cooking Directions

  1. 1 Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook bow-tie pasta at a boil, stirring occasionally, until tender yet firm to the bite, about 12 minutes. Drain.
  2. 2 Meanwhile, heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Stir in sausage and garlic and cook until sausage is no longer pink, 5 to 7 minutes. Pour in chicken broth and stir in bell pepper; bring to a boil. Add cherry tomatoes and zucchini, cover, and cook for about 4 minutes.
  3. 3 Reduce heat to low and stir in Parmesan cheese, butter, adobo seasoning, oregano, and black pepper. Let simmer until sauce has thickened, 5 to 7 minutes. Stir in cooked pasta and serve.
