Tastes like chowda

It’s been a bit since I posted here. We were away for a week and then Thanksgiving over took everything. While there was cookery to be had over the last week it’s all rather frazzled in my brain. I’ll try to sort out the interesting bits and post something later.

For now here’s something I threw together last night for a weeks worth of lunches. While I didn’t set out for it to taste like chowda it’s not a bad result.

Tastes Like Chowda

1/2 # of bacon, cut into 1/2″ pieces with some of the fat trimmed.
1 med. red onion, diced
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 pkg. Trader Joe’s chicken & apple sausage, sliced into 1/2″ “coins”
2 cup frozen corn (I used Trader Joe’s roasted corn)
2 cups heavy cream
1 # rigatoni, cooked

In a heavy skillet saute the bacon under crispy.

Remove bacon pieces from the skillet, leaving about 2 Tbsp. bacon fat. Saute the onions and garlic until the onions start to become translucent.

Add the sausage and corn, toss with onions/garlic and allow to heat through. About 5 minutes.

Pour in the heavy cream and allow it to come to a simmer. Cook for about 5 minutes more, stirring to pull up any fond from the bottom of the skillet.

Mix in the cooked rigatoni and serve.
