Friday is Carb Day!

Pin It



Friday is Carb Day!
Not what you're thinking...

Let me explain...This Sunday is the annual running of the Indianapolis 500. It's my Memorial Day Weekend tradition to watch the race and I'm a fan of open wheel racing (Indy and Formula One).

Friday is known as "Carb Day", meaning the cars that qualified for the starting field are given the opportunity to practice in their "Race Day" set-up. "Carburetion Day" is the final tune-up before Sunday's race. The funny thing about "Carb Day" is that Indy cars haven't used carburetors in about 50 years, they all use fuel injection systems. 

But I guess tradition is tradition...

Since Friday is Carb Day and the goal at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway is all about speed, here's a FAST and easy pasta recipe, one of my nieces' favorites too.

Linguine with Sausage


1 lb bulk sausage (I like to use Italian sausage, but you can use any)
2 leeks slice stalk (white part)
1 cup whipping cream
1 package linguine pasta


In a skillet, cook sausage (break into pieces) until brown. Add leeks and cook until tender. Drain fat, depending on the sausage usually not much to drain off. Add cream to sausage mixture, heat through. Toss in pasta and top with Parmesan cheese. Serves 4
