Sausage Bow-tie Pasta with Breadsticks

1½ cups warm water
2 Tbsp. sugar
1 Tbsp. yeast

Let that sit for 5 minutes. Then add:

3½ cups flour
1 tsp Salt

Mix until smooth then let raise for 10 minutes. Roll out dough into a large square on a floured surface. Brush with melted (real) butter mixed with garlic and then sprinkle with kosher salt. Fold in half and cut into 1 inch strips. Twist and place on a cooking sheet. Let sit for 15 to 20 minutes to raise. Bake at 400 degrees for 20 minutes or until golden brown. Immediately after baking, brush with more garlic butter and sprinkle with kosher salt and grated Parmesan cheese. (recipe courtesy Fabulessly Frugal)

Brown 1/2 lb Italian sausage (or original with Italian seasonings) in large pan, add a dash of red pepper flakes
Add 1/2 cup chopped onion and 2 garlic cloves, minced, with a little olive oil
When they are translucent and cooked, add 1-26oz can Italian diced tomatoes (drained), 1 1/2 cups heavy cream (I substitute some with milk) cover and let simmer around 10 mins.
Stir in 1 lb. COOKED bow-tie noodles (I had shell noodles on hand) Stir to combine
Add salt and pepper and some Parmesan cheese to taste
And serve!
