I hadn’t made this in a long time, until I was digging for recipes to put on the site. If that keeps happening, my family is going to LOVE me! We love this creamy sausage pasta, it’s a quick meal that doesn’t taste quick!
Creamy Spicy Sausage Pasta
- 1T olive oil
- 1 pound Italian sausage
- 3/4 cup heavy cream
- 3/4 cup Newman’s Own tomato sauce (I used the roasted garlic)
- 1 1/2 cup frozen peas
- salt and pepper (don’t let the 4 year old help with the pepper!)
- 1 pound rigatoni
- 1 cup mozzarella cheese
Cook the sausage, then add cream and tomato sauce. Simmer until slightly thickened. Add peas and cook until peas are hot. Boil pasta according to directions and add to sausage and sauce mixture. Top with mozzarella cheese and cover to let cheese melt.
With using salt, pepper, and cheese that I already had on hand, I was able to make this meal for 5.97 and it easily could have fed 6 people. My husband, one of the biggest eaters I know asked why I made so much, and he only saw what was left after I had some and after Bug had 2 little bowls.
