One Pot Sausage and Tomato Pasta
This one pot pasta bursts with flavour from Italian sausage, tomatoes & fresh herbs. All you need is one pot to cook this delicious recipe!
- 3 spicy Italian sausage, meat removed from the casing
- 2 garlic cloves, minced
- 1/4 cup red wine substitute with beef or chicken stock or water if needed
- 28 oz can whole or diced tomatoes
- 1/3 cup fresh chopped parsley
- 1/2 cup fresh chopped basil
- 2 tsp kosher salt
- fresh ground pepper
- 4 cups water
- 12 oz linguine
- 1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese
- parsley & basil to garnish
In a 3.5 quart (or larger) braiser or high-sided pan, add a drizzle of olive oil & turn to med-high heat. Add sausage meat & cook until golden & cooked through about 10-12 minutes, using a spoon to break into smaller pieces.
Add minced garlic, stir and cook for 2 minutes.
Stir in red wine and cook until mostly evaporated.
Add in tomatoes with their juices, parsley, basil, salt, pepper, stir together & use a spoon to break the tomatoes into smaller pieces if using whole tomatoes.
Add water & stir everything to combine. Bring to a boil over high heat, turn to medium-high to keep at a strong simmer.
Add in dried pasta & fold gently into the sauce as the noodles slightly soften. The pot will be quite full; that’s ok.
Cover & cook for 5 minutes, then remove the lid & cook for 10-15 more minutes. Stir & turn the noodles so they don’t stick to the bottom of the pan, cooking until most of the liquid is absorbed with a bit of sauce left.
Stir in shredded parmesan cheese & let sit for a few minutes. Garnish with parsley & basil.
This recipe is wonderful during the week or make it a part of a full menu on the weekend.
What to serve with this one pot pasta meal
- Fresh bread: A fresh loaf of ciabatta or baguette with some butter
