Hey Alicia here back with another family recipe to share. This year my family and I have been picking one country from our heritage each month and making food from that country. It has been really fun! This month though we're just picking recipes we make often at home. Last week I shared mushroom risotto.
Today I have a recipe I got from my mom. It is something she used to make us growing up. I don't really know what it's called so I just call it by the main ingredients and how you cook it: Sausage and Pasta Skillet Dinner. Maybe one day I will find a better name for it.
Sausage and Pasta Skillet Dinner
This easy recipe is a instant hit every time I make it. My 3 year old says "Thanks Mom this is delicious!" My husband can't stop telling me how good it is and finishes off the pan. Even my 1 year old clears her plate. It is really good, but also easy and fast! Perfect for those busy nights when you have a lot going on but don't want to give up family dinner time.
I usually use penne pasta but if that's not on hand I just use whatever pasta I have available. The amount of pasta isn't hard and fast. I never measure that either and was just estimating the amount of pasta I was making. Just make enough pasta for 4 people and that's a good amount for this recipe. I also never measure the amount of spices I'm putting it. Usually, I just give a few good shakes over the top of basil and oregano each and it comes out great. And I've used fresh and canned tomatoes and it comes out great either way. Top it with some parmesan when it comes out and it's the perfect week night dinner.
