Penne Yummyolio

Pasta Yummyolio
I just didn't know what to name this pasta dish. Its yet another penne pasta dish I made with different ingredients available wth me at that time. It was a weekend when I blackmailed my sister into coming over because I was cooking something yummy. So thought of naming it that way.


Penne Pasta: 250gms
Olive Oil: 3 tbsp.
Salsa: 100ml
Garlic: 2 cloves
Onion - 1 medium
Cherry Tomatoes: 10
Capsicum: 1 (yellow or red)
Baby corn: 5 or 6
Sausages: 2
Streaky bacon: 3 strips
Basil Leaves - a sprig
Black Olives: 5
Parsley - garnish
Cheeses: Parmesan, Emmental, Mozzarella


Boil water and add penne to it with some salt and olive oil. Once the pasta is cooked, drain and keep aside. Mince garlic, chop onions, capsicum. tomatoes. Cut baby corn into thin strips. Slice sausages and olives. Heat olive oil in a pan, add minced garlic and let it sizzle for a few seconds. Add onions, capsicum and baby corn. Toss around till onions become soft. Add sausages. Take streaky bacon strips and snip them up using a pair of kitchen scissors into the pan. Allow the bacon fat to melt, and add the the cherry tomatoes and basil leaves. Add in the salsa and cook for 2-3 minutes. Add the sliced olives, grate the cheeses and add them too. Combine well and garnish with parsley and some grated parmesan or emmental. Pasta Yummyolio is ready to serve!
