Quick and Easy Homemade Italian Sausage Pasta Sauce

Quick and Easy Homemade Italian Sausage Pasta Sauce

Spaghetti or pasta is a favorite weeknight go-to dinner for many families.  It is for us too.

I used to reach for a jar of prepared pasta sauce, but once I figured out that homemade pasta sauce didn’t have to take all day to make, I rarely grab the jar.

Instead, I use some version of this recipe.  It starts with a can of Red Gold Crushed Tomatoes.  Well, actually I started this version with the Italian sausage, but the crushed tomatoes are the main ingredient.

The sauce comes together in the time it takes to boil the water and cook the pasta.  It’s so easy!  Homemade is so much better than store-bought and it’s just about as easy as opening a jar.

Italian sausage and plenty of herbs spice up the good tomato flavor.  It’s fantastic over any type of pasta.

Italian Sausage and Spinach Stuffed Shells

I have a freezer full of pork that we got from my niece’s 4-H project.  The place my sister took it to be processed doesn’t always give you what you ask for.  I think it’s more what they are in the mood to make.  The day they processed my order, they must have been in the mood for Italian Sausage.  I’ve never seen so much of it!

With so much Italian sausage, I’m having to get creative to use it.  I decided to give it a try in stuffed shells.  The result tasted great and as a bonus, you get to cook once and eat twice.  This recipe makes enough for two 9×13 pans! [Read more…]

Easy Meatball Subs

I’m not sure why I never thought of doing this before.  It was so quick and simple.  My boys were very happy and the rest of us liked the subs too.  I used frozen meatballs and a jar of spaghetti sauce, so it just can’t get any easier. Perfect for a busy night. [Read more…]
