During the fall I love finding easy, hearty dishes for my family. Sinisa recently made this delicious, one pot Italian meal and I just had to share it with you all. Not only is it fantastic because you only use one pot to cook everything, but it’s affordable, too!
- 12 oz. of Barilla Blue Box Penne Pasta, uncooked
- 3 Johnsonville Mild Italian Sausage Links
- 1 can of crushed tomatoes
- 1 cup of cream
- 1/2 an onion, roughly chopped
- 3 cups of broth (chicken or vegetable)
- 12 oz. of mushrooms (optional)
- Seasoning to taste (we used parsley, salt, pepper and Italian seasoning)
- Cooking oil
Get a medium to large sized pot and add enough cooking oil to coat the bottom of the pot.
Cut the Johnsonville Mild Italian Sausage Links into bite size pieces.
Add your onions and sausage to the pot and cook them until meat is thoroughly cooked.
Add crushed tomatoes and broth to the pan.
Then add mushrooms, Barilla Pasta and seasonings.
Pour cream over the top and then stir well.
Simmer on the stove top for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Your whole family will love this meal and you will love how easy it is on your wallet, costing less than 10 dollars. And cleanup is a snap.
You can find all of the ingredients you need for this meal at your local Kroger store, including the Johnsonville Mild Italian Sausage Links and Barilla Blue Box Pasta.
Pasta dishes are some of my favorite dinners to make, and I always have Barilla Blue Box Pasta, Italy’s #1 brand of pasta, stocked in my pantry. Pasta is perfect for busy nights and those last-minute dinner guests that come over before you can get to the grocery store! There are so many varieties of pasta dishes that you can make and you can personalize the dishes to your family’s likes and dislikes.
When we add meat to our pasta we often choose Johnsonville Mild Italian Sausage Links. They don’t require any additional seasonings which makes them convenient and flavorful additions to any pasta dish. We usually add them to our spaghetti, but Sinisa also likes to put the sausage in some soups he makes as well.
