One Dish Sausage Pasta – Updated

As I search and search for good, easy recipes to make for my family, I have come across many misses, but this one was a definite hit! It is tasty, easy, and loved by adults, as well as children and toddlers. I haven’t steered away from this recipe, albeit I imagine you can add different meats or spices to suit your needs.

If you try one recipe on my blog, I would recommend this one for it is one of the top three tastiest recipes I have, but it is by far the easiest to make.

Simple list of ingredients.
