Today I’m bringing you a new recipe that I’m pretty proud of. This is one that was born out of equal parts necessity and laziness.
Necessity because we needed something for dinner quickly, and laziness because the thought of leaving the house to run to the grocery store or even to the drive thru was more than my sweatpants-clad self could bear.
I rifled through my pantry and fridge and realized I had similar ingredients to one of of our favorite easy dinners, One Pot Cheesy Sausage and Peppers Pasta.
I didn’t have any Rotel, but I did have a can of Italian style diced tomatoes, so I decided to create an Italian-inspired version.
I’ve made this pretty much weekly since then, and it’s become one of my kids’ favorite meals, especially my daughter. She calls it “yummy sausage spaghetti!”
How to make One Pot Italian Sausage Pasta – Step by Step
- Grab a large nonstick skillet and heat up a bit of olive oil over medium high heat. Cook your Italian Sausage until nicely browned, then add in some onions and garlic. Cook until onions are soft, and enjoy that heavenly aroma!
- Stir in some chicken broth, heavy cream, Italian diced tomatoes, and broken dry spaghetti noodles (I like to break mine into halves or better yet, into thirds.)
- Put a lid on top of the skillet and turn the heat to medium low. Let the pasta cook undisturbed for about 15 minutes, or until noodles are nice and tender. In the mean time, you could whip up and easy side dish like one of our faves, Garlic Parmesan Roasted Asparagus!
- Once the pasta is cooked through, stir in some mozzarella cheese until fully melted. Sprinkle some more on top, place the lid back on, and cook for a few more minutes until the cheese is nice and gooey. Now you’re ready to eat!
