I was skeptic about this dish because pasta
and sauerkraut just doesn't sound good to me.
However, the reviews made me think it HAD to be
Surprisingly, very few ingredients.
Please note: The recipe calls for white wine, I only had sherry.
I made due because no way was I going to drive all the
way back to town for 1/4 cup of white wine.
While the pasta water was heating, I chopped all the ingredients.
Look! Another recipe with fresh parsley....is this a pattern?
Parsley, garlic, red bell pepper, and onion.
Heat the olive oil.
When the water boils, it is time to put the pasta into
While the pasta is cooking, saute the onions and bell pepper.
I had a HUGE onion....and it was a STRONG onion.
I was sobbing, not crying....WOW....that thing was STRONG!
I only used 1/2 of the onion.
Add the garlic and kielbasa.
Keep stirring and mixing the ingredients.
Add the sauerkraut.
Add the fresh parsley.
Mix and cook a bit more.
When noodles are done and drained.
Add them to the skillet.
The sauerkraut is the scent your house will be
filled with by this time.
Regan has already come in at this point and said, "You
don't expect me to eat that do you?"
I did make her try a spoonful before she could say she
didn't like it.
She didn't like it.
Regan ate her 3-Way Chili she had from lunch.
Kids come and kids go in the household.
Husband's opinion has more weight on whether this
recipe will be cooked again at The Bakery.
Notice: HE IS AT THE TABLE!
We have another SUCCESS!!!
Matter of fact, he kept saying, "This is really good!"
This recipe does have a lot of chopping....I did it the
old fashioned way....with a knife and my trusted
Pampered Chef chopper.
Even with the amount of chopping, from start
to finish it took exactly ONE HOUR
to get it to the table.
We know that if it took ONE HOUR the first time to
make it, means it will be less the next time I make it.
TWO THUMBS UP!!!
Yes! I will make it again!!!
