Hi everyone, this is Mona. I am so happy to contributing to Food, Glorious Food! I started to read Charlene’s blog around 2 years ago, when I was just starting my Masters degree in United States. Her recipes have been giving me lots of spirit and warmth.
Today I am going to share with you an easy and comfort food recipe which will have your back in winter – One Skillet Italian Sausage Pasta. As a busy student, the last thing that is going to happen is a run the supermarket in the cold winter. So the best choice for me is always food like dried pasta and tinned tomatoes. The lucky thing is I never run out of ideas about making a delicious and hearty meal with these ingredients. If you are interested in making this kind of easy pasta dish, stick to the directions below.
Prepare time: 20 minutes
Total time: 30 minutes
3/4 pound Italian pork sausage
1-1/4 cups water
1 can (14.5 oz each) Hunt's® Diced Tomatoes with Basil, Garlic and Oregano, undrained
1 cup Hunt's® Tomato Sauce
8 ounces dry penne pasta, uncooked
1/4 cup Kraft® Grated Parmesan Cheese
1. Heat large skillet over medium-high heat. Add sausage; cook 5 minutes, breaking apart with spoon to crumble. Drain; return to skillet.
2. Add water, undrained tomatoes, tomato sauce and pasta to skillet; stir to combine. Bring to a boil. Cover; reduce heat and cook 15 minutes or until pasta is tender.
3. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese. Serve with additional Parmesan cheese, if desired.
Sometimes, I also like adding other vegetables like sweet corns and green beans. One of my favorite food brands is Alexia’s frozen vegetables. They have organic choices, which are healthy and convenient.
