Welcome to Simple Fare, Fairly Simple. This is a place for me to post recipes of all kinds...along with other miscellaneous fodder from my so-called life here in the south. Who knows what you will find here. Could be anything from my husband...known as IT Guy...to my kids and beautiful grandbabies that are growing up way too fast right before my eyes. But...mostly this will be a place for food. I hope you'll see something you like and if you decide to try something from the list...leave me a comment and let me know!

Veggie and Kielbasa Fettuccine

I love cooking with kielbasa. Especially when there are veggies involved. I think it flavors the whole dish and let’s face it, sometimes veggies are a little boring. I love them....but every once in a while it’s nice to jazz up the flavor. This turned out really good and is super easy. Change up the veggies you want to use...I used bell peppers and onion...but throwing some mushroom in there would be great or some kind of squash. Super yum!!

Veggie and Kielbasa Fettuccine
1 1-pound package kielbasa
2 bell pepper (I used a red and yellow) ~ diced
1 medium onion ~ diced
1 cup chicken broth
1 cup heavy cream
1/2 - 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
Salt and pepper to taste
8 ounces fettuccine noodles ~ cooked and drained
In a large skillet, cook the veggies and kielbasa until the kielbasa has some color and the veggies are tender-crisp....about 5 minutes or so. Add the seasonings and stir.
Add the chicken stock and cream.
Cook for about 15 minutes to reduce the liquid a bit and heat through.
Add the cooked pasta and toss to coat.

Here we go!!!!

Cook the veggies and kielbasa then throw in the seasonings.

Add the broth and the cream and cook for a bit to reduce the liquid.
