I love when I can whip up a recipe that is not only a staple in my home, but quickly becomes a staple in the homes of other families. It’s my mission to help families live healthier and save time, so it gives me the warm and fuzzies when people tell me this recipe is their jam. This Sausage Pasta recipe is wonderful because it’s so fast to throw together. I can have dinner on the table in the time it takes to boil water. Sausage cooks fast and is a tasty treat! Plus it’s totally family-approved!

  • Salt for water
  • 1t olive oil
