Creamy Asparagus Sausage Pasta

This Asparagus Sausage Pasta is a delicious Italian pasta recipe that is the perfect spring time dish to cook using some fresh asparagus. Made with Italian sausage and a few spices. Creamy and delicious without adding any cream. Perfect for a weekday or special occasion dinner idea.

I know spring has arrived not when I receive a bouquet of flowers (tulips are my favourite), but when the Italian surprises me with a bouquet of wild asparagus! It’s a good thing I love Asparagus, I like to think of it as the sophisticated vegetable.

These days when I am driving down our main street, I look at the side of the road and I see the occasional person bending down and hunting around in the bushes looking for wild asparagus. Not only is it perfect in a pasta dish but also parmesan roasted, as an asparagus quiche, or blended into a Pesto made into a tasty Italian frittata!

  • 3 cups cooked short pasta (approximately 2 cups dry)
  • 2 lbs asparagus
  • 1 cup boiled asparagus water
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1-2 cloves garlic (minced)
  • ½ shallot (minced)
  • 2 large Italian hot or mild sausages (casing removed and chopped)
  • 2 tablespoons tomato puree (passata)
  • 1-2 dashes pepper or hot pepper flakes
  • ¼ teaspoon salt or to taste
