When I post savory recipes, it’s usually on a Sunday, and because I adore alliteration, I call them Sunday Suppers. I made this easy Italian sausage pasta sauce for dinner a couple of nights ago, and it was so good that I want to share it today. We’re leaving in the morning to jet off to Los Angeles for our swanky #PeopleVIP Oscars trip from People Magazine and klout perks, and as soon as we get home, we’re jumping in the car to spend the rest of next week at The Outer Banks. I am 99% sure I won’t post next week, so consider this Italian sausage pasta sauce a gift to apologize in advance for my absence on the blog next week.
This sauce is versatile. You can use it as a “straight up” pasta sauce. You can mix it with the pasta in a casserole and bake it. You can use it for the meaty-saucy layer in lasagna. You can stuff it into shells or pour it over cheese-stuffed shells before baking. Heck, you could even add stock and creamy cannellini beans and maybe some torn kale to make your own Italian-inspired soup! As the name implies, it is very easy to make, and you probably have everything you need without having to make a special shopping trip.
