Recipe: Sausage Pasta Sauce

This is an easy sauce to make during the week. As long as you have a jar of tomato sauce handy  all you need are a few ingredients.

Ingredients (Serves 5):

  • one medium onion, finely chopped
  • 3 cloves of garlic, finely chopped
  • 24 oz. jar of marinara sauce (or fried tomatos)
  • 1 sausage link
  • parsley
  • 1 cup red wine
  • salt and pepper
  • parmesan rind (optional)

1. In a pan sautee the garlic until it is a very light golden color

2. Add the onion, add some salt, and sautee until translucent

3. Make an incision in the sausage and remove the filling

4. Add the filling to the pan and sautee until golden brown


5. Add the red wine and reduce

6. Pour in the tomato sauce and if you have it, add the parmesan rind. Season with salt and pepper to taste

7. Cover and keep on the lowest heat possible until serving. The longer you leave it, the more the flavors mix.

Pour ‘al dente’ pasta into the sauce pan and mix. Serve with the finely chopped parsley on top and add some fresh cracked black pepper and parmesan cheese to taste.

    Thanks! And isn’t that board awesome? It dries up in seconds…and is so easy to clean

  2. It looks delicious. The recipe sounds simple and easy. It’s similar to what I’m making which I add bacon and oregano, too.
