Spaghetti w/ Smoked Sausage and Carrots

I know this sounds like a weird combination, but it really is super yummy. My kids always think it looks weird, but once they get the first taste, they pretty much inhale everything on their plates... that makes it a winner in my book!

olive oil
1/4 onion, finely diced
2-3 carrots, peeled and shredded
1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
8 inch piece of smoked sausage, cut into strips
freshly ground black pepper
1/2 lb spaghetti, cooked as directed

Heat the oil in a large frying pan. Add the onion and cook until softened and slightly translucent. Add the red pepper flakes and cook for about 1 minute, just until fragrant, then add the carrots and sausage. Cook for about 10 minutes, stirring often, until the sausage is slightly browned and the carrots are softening. Add pepper to taste and toss with the cooked spaghetti. Serve at once.

This recipe makes enough for 4 adult servings or 2 adult and 4 child sized servings.
