Apple Cider Sausage Recipe

  • 1 pound mild Italian sausage links
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 (12 fluid ounce) bottle hard apple cider
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1 cup orange juice
  • 1 (14.5 ounce) can diced tomatoes
  • 1 pound angel hair pasta
  1. Combine sausages and water in a large skillet over medium-high heat; bring to a boil. Uncover and cook until water evaporates, about 5 minutes. Transfer sausages to a cutting board; cool sausages until easily handled, about 5 minutes.
  2. Slice sausages into 1/2-inch disks.
  3. Combine apple cider and onion in the skillet over medium heat; cook and stir for 5 minutes. Add sliced sausage and orange juice; cook, stirring occasionally, until flavors combine, about 10 minutes. Stir diced tomatoes into sauce; simmer until heated through, about 5 minutes.
  4. Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Cook angel hair in the boiling water, stirring occasionally until tender yet firm to the bite, 4 to 5 minutes. Drain.
  5. Divide angel pasta among 6 plates. Cover with sausage and sauce.
