Penne In Italian Sausage Sauce

Sorry for not posting any recipes here in a while. It's not that I was not cooking. My kitchen was actually very busy the past weeks when my FIL was here. It's just that before I can even post them here I need to of course have an accompanying picture to make it more enticing and appetizing to my readers. Well the cooking; making presentations; taking pictures; downloading and cropping of pics before I can post my recipe seem to slowdown the process. Ok enough of the excuses, the important thing is My Kitchen Table is back on business, LOL.

One of the favorite ingredients that I always use in my kitchen is pasta. I have different kinds in my pantry. Here's one very easy and quick pasta dish that I know you will enjoy to try.


1 lb of Penne cooked according to package
Sweet and Hot Italian Sausage Sauce
Parmesan Cheese Topping

1 pack of Sweet Italian Sausage (6 links)
1 pack of Hot Italian Sausage (6 links)
1 medium onion, chopped
2 cloves of garlic, minced
2 cans of 16 oz. Tomato Sauce
2 cans of 16 oz. Diced Tomatoes
1/2 tbsp dried Italian Seasoning
1/2 tbsp Parsley Flakes
1/2 tbsp dried Sweet Basil
Salt and Pepper to taste
1 tbsp Olive oil

1. In medium heat, saute garlic and onion in olive oil for about 3 minutes or until soft.
2. Meanwhile, remove the skin of the sausage links and slice them in 1 inch thick pieces, just so it is easier to move them around the pan. But you can also drop them straight to the pan and just break them with your cooking spatula.
3. Mix in the sausage in the pan and stir until opaque.
4. Add the tomato sauce, diced tomatoes, and herbs. Adjust the heat to low and simmer for about an hour, stirring every now and then. Slow cooking makes the sausage really tender and yummy.
5. Add salt and pepper to taste.

I usually make more sauce than what the recipe calls for and just keep the rest in a vacuum sealed canister for later use. So next time I crave for another pasta dish, I will have an instant sauce to use.
