or good as a side dish. If you are a sausage lover you'll like
this one! [Pictorial
1 - 2 links smoked sausage
1/2 med. onion sliced thin
1 Tbs. diced garlic
Handful of chopped bell pepper and green onions
Cream of mushroom soup (or your favorite)
Angel Hair Pasta (1" round)
1 tbs. butter (about)
Olive oil to coat bottom of pan
First put the water to boil for the pasta.

Raise fire and bring it to a boil for 30 seconds then lower fire
back to low.
and drain cooked pasta and add to Soup mixture. Stir well and cover.
Cook on low fire for 5 minutes.
Adjust seasonings as you like. If it looks a little too thick add
small amounts of water until it's the consistency you like. Don't
over thin the soup.
Note: Depending on what kind of sausage you use you may want to
boil it separately on the side before adding it to the pot. Some
sausages have great amounts of grease in them, and, some have heavy
flavors. You'll have to experiment with this. You can also use
homemade sausage sliced regularly.
