For those nights when you can't be troubled to make something difficult, this is a great meal. Use your favorite marinara, your favorite sausage, and your favorite pasta. I've served this over Trader Joe's pappardelle egg noodles (dried) and their spinach-ricotta ravioli (fresh).

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Boil pasta in lots of salted, boiling water according to package directions.
  2. In the meantime, over medium-high heat, squeeze the sausage from its casing and cook in a heavy skillet until completely cooked through (about 10 minutes). Make sure you break the pieces into small bits.
  3. Once the sausage is cooked, take the pan off the heat and carefully add the marinara. Put back over medium heat until sauce is heated through.
  4. Serve over cooked pasta, topped with fresh grated parmesan cheese.
