Easy sausage Pasta

Today I am sharing this very easy dish. It is super budget friendly and part of my $10 Dinner Challenge that I hosted over on my Cooking channel on YouTube. This such an easy dish that can be frozen for more dinner options. I like to grill tons of sausages one night, use some for dinner the first night and than make a big batch of this pasta the next night and freezing half of it for a freezer meal to use later when I am busy. I am a huge fan of cooking once and eating multiple times. So lets jump into the recipe


serves 4

4 sausages (it can be any turkey, pork or chicken)

2 to 3 large tomatos (chopped )

2 red or yellow bell peppers (chopped)

1 cup of spinach

1 tbs fresh basil

2 cloves of garlic

1/2 pkg of pasta ( I used small shells you can use penne or rigatoni as well)

1/2 cup of Romano or Parmesan cheese

1/2 cup of pasta water

1tbs or red pepper flakes (optional if you like a bit of heat)

1 tbs of olive oil + 1 tbs of olive oil


Heat up first tbs of olive oil than add minced garlic cloves and sauce until fragrant. Add chopped peppers and cook until soft. Add sausage and heat through. Follow with spinach, basil and tomatoes. Cook until spinach wilted.

Meanwhile you should have water boiling for pasta. Cook pasta accordingly to the package or until al Dante

Once pasta is cooked add it to the meat and vegetables. At this point if you find that it is a bit dry add pasta water. I didn’t need to because I was using pork sausage so they were a bit fatty which made pasta not so dry. Drizzle with remaining olive oil and sprinkle with cheese. You can now also add red chilli pepper flakes. Enjoy
