Total Time 50 minutes
Servings 8 Bowls


  • Large Pot


  • 2 Lbs Rizer's Hot Loose Sausage
  • 1/2 Cup Chopped Carrots
  • 1/2 Cup Chopped Celery
  • 1/2 Cup Chopped Bell Pepper
  • 1/2 Cup Chopped Vidalia Onion
  • 3/4 Carton Vegetable Broth (Chicken works well too)
  • 1 Can Fire Roasted Rotel Tomatoes (can sub for mild rotel if you don't love spicy)
  • 1 Can Original Rotel Tomatoes
  • 1/2 Box Bowtie Pasta
  • 1 tsp Morton Nature's Seasoning
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil (can use butter)


  • In large pot on medium/high, cook Rizer's Hot Loose Sausage until done. About 10-15 minutes. Remove from pot and drain sausage for excess grease.
  • While the sausage is draining and using the same pot as before, sautee the vegetables, adding in the olive oil (or butter) for about 5 minutes on med/high. Vegetables should be cooked but still slightly firm.
  • To the pot, add broth and both cans of rotel tomatoes. Add in the seasoning. Let simmer for about 3 minutes.
  • Add the sausage back to the pot.
  • Add in the pasta, cover, and simmer until pasta is cooked- about 10- 15 mintues. If needed, add in the rest of the broth if the pasta has absorbed more than expected.
  • Serve with toast slices and enjoy!
