- 3/4 pound of Uncle John’s Pride Cooked Italian Sausage
- 1 and 1/4 cups of water
- 1 can of diced tomatoes
- 1 cup of tomato sauce
- 8 ounces of dry penne pasta
- parmesan cheese
- salt and pepper to taste
The first thing you need to do is to slice up some basil, garlic, and oregano. It’s up to you how much of each ingredient you want to use. Once this is done, you can start cooking the Italian sausage.
To do this, start heating up a large skillet with medium to high heat. Also, add a bit of oil. Once the pan is hot enough, add the Italian sausage. It should be ready in about 5 minutes. But before that, you will have to use a spoon to crumble the sausage. Drain the excess oil, and then you can start cooking the pasta.
Add the water, garlic, oregano, basil, pasta, tomato sauce and tomato slices to the same skillet. Stir it good so that the flavors will blend beautifully. Bring the ingredients to a boil. Once it’s boiling, cover the skillet and reduce the heat. Let it cook for about 15 minutes, or until the pasta is tender and ready. Then, you can add the salt and pepper to taste.
Once the cooking is done, allow the dish to cool off a bit before serving. Don’t forget to sprinkle the parmesan cheese. After all, it’s not an Italian pasta if it has no paremsan cheese.
