Pasta with Smoked Sausage and Red Cabbage

Cooking time: 25 minutes for menu        Cooking schedule: see below for instructions

      This is a simple dinner, but full of the robust flavors of smoked sausages and red cabbage, tossed with pasta.  If you didn't make the Red Cabbage you can buy ready-made to use in this dish.

Pasta with Red Cabbage and Smoked Sausage

Total time: 25 minutes
    The slightly salty, sweet flavor of smoked sausage goes well with the sweet sour taste of the cabbage.  The pasta just brings it all together.  I used smoked bratwurst.  Italian sausages would work... but something smoked is better!
