  • one teaspoon of Italian herbs

  1. cook the sausage for about 5 - 7 minutes then slice and set aside
  2. saute the onions and garlic in olive oil for 5 minutes 
  3. then add the tomatoes and spinach let it reduce down, add sausages 
  4.  add the herbs and basil and let it simmer for 15 -20 minutes 
  5. serve with pasta of choice
  6. enjoy

  1. Never heard of bison, let alone eaten! But suspect that's because I've never been anywhere where it's available. Similar meaty taste, or more gamey like venison?

  2. I make spaghetti and meat sauce with bison and the kids love it. I'd love to try the sausages too-sounds delicious!

  3. Pasta are my all time favorite and your looks delicious but may be I have to substitute bison with chicken and I am sure it will taste awesome!

  4. Un plato de pasta delicioso, que fácil y rico.

  17. Hi Rebecca. We LOVE bison, and often have bison burgers, tenderloins (if they are on sale) and sausages. We have to go way out of our way to buy it, as not all our markets carry it, but its worth it. Have a wonderful week.

  18. I have never used bison sausage, how interesting. I love "alternative" meats.

  19. I have never had bison but you have piqued my interest!

  20. I think I need to make a trip to Whole Foods to look for bison sausage! This sounds great!

  21. Hi Rebecca,
    I have heard that there are other meat that is much leaner than the beef but still considered red! They told me about buffalo when I was in Denver and it was quite tasty. I need to try these Bison sausage but no Whole Foods here... I need to make a trip up there!

I love pasta and I would like to try all kinds of ingredients. Thanks for posting! BTW, I haven't visited your blog for a while, but I always enjoy your Facebook posts. Please keep it up!

  28. I've never had bison sausage before but I love that you made this pasta healthier with it!

  29. We frequently have bison - it's available at our Farmer's Markets as well as the grocery store. I've never mixed it with pasta though so this is a grand (and simple) idea.
