You can’t beat this easy weeknight pasta recipe. All you need is four ingredients to make a delicious meal the family will love!
Sometimes you want a great dinner but don’t have the time or energy to make something elaborate. For those nights, I bring you this very easy weeknight pasta recipe. Four ingredients make for a savory, delicious meal. The secret is using sausage instead of plain ground beef or turkey and vodka tomato sauce. Since those shortcut ingredients are both full of flavor, they make this dish taste more special than plain old spaghetti with meat sauce (even though it’s just as easy to make).
Easy Weeknight Pasta Recipe
When you want a tasty dinner in a hurry, this weeknight pasta recipe is perfect! Four ingredients make for a savory, delicious meal.
- Total Time: 30 minutes
- Yield: 4 1x
- 12–16 oz. pasta of your choice (I prefer whole wheat or veggie pasta.)
- 1 lb. raw Italian sausage removed from casings
- 8 oz. mushrooms quartered or sliced
- 28 oz. parmesan and vodka pasta sauce
Bring stockpot of salted water to a boil. (Cover pot to speed up the process.)
While water heats, spray a deep 12″ skillet with cooking spray, and heat over medium-high heat. Add sausage, and brown and crumble meat. When meat is almost done, add mushrooms. Saute until meat is cooked through. Drain, and return to pan.
Stir in pasta sauce. Cover and reduce heat to low. Simmer until pasta is ready.
Cook pasta according to package directions. Drain and gently stir noodles into sauce until evenly coated.
