The name “farfalle” means “butterflies” in Italian, which is fitting given the pasta’s distinctive shape.


Heat oil in a deep skillet, add crumbled sausage and sauté.

Add onions, garlic, and red pepper flakes to skillet and continue to sauté.

Incorporate sauce, heavy cream, and salt to skillet. Let simmer until sausage is cooked and flavors combine.

Boil pasta in a separate pot.
