Bosch Universal Plus Mixer

Bosch Universal Plus Mixer

My KitchenAid was on its last leg and it was at the point, I only used it for mixing bread dough, everything else I mixed by hand. It wasn’t long after my husband bought my KitchenAid that I learned about Bosch mixers. I knew, if my KitchenAid ever died, I would purchase a Bosch Universal Plus Mixer. After a few years, with all the bread baking I do, the KitchenAid could not keep up any longer.

Roasted Bell Peppers and Sausage Penne Pasta

Roasted Bell Peppers and Sausage Penne Pasta

I came up with this recipe about ten years ago after eating something similar in a local restaurant. The original dish had chicken and sausage and it was out of this world!
