Kielbasa Bowtie Skillet

Another quick and easy recipe for you to enjoy. Comes together in 30 minutes or less and taste great!

8 oz of bowtie pasta (I have use up to 12 0z and have also used whole wheat rotini)
1 lb. of kielbasa cut into small slices (I used turkey smoked sausage)
1 Jar (4 1/2 oz.) mushrooms, drained
2 tsp. of minced garlic
2 Tab. of butter
1 Tab. of cornstarch
1 1/2 cups of milk
1 1/2 cups of frozen snow peas
1 cup (or more) of shredded cheddar cheese

Cook Pasta. Meanwhile in a skillet saute sausage, mushrooms and garlic in butter until heated through. Combine cornstarch and milk until smooth. Gradually add to skillet. Bring to a boil over medium heat. Cook and stir until thickened. I usually add the peas at this point and turn heat to low. The peas don't need to cook long...you want them crisp tender. When peas are done to your liking stir in pasta and cheese. I like to throw some extra cheese on top. Makes 4-6 servings depending on how much everyone eats.
