Old pasta recipes not doing the trick? Want something new to liven up that old spaghetti, tomato, and meat ménage à trois? This easy-peasy weekday meal will pep up your pasta patterns. Slightly spicy sausage melds with a sauce of herbs and spicy pepper flakes (and tomatoes; we don't want to take away everything traditional).
