Who here loves Italian sausage? We do! I always have some in my freezer. My family loves it, heck they love sausages of all types not just Italian sausage. Breakfast links, biscuits and sausage gravy, kielbasa, bratwurst… they love it all. I incorporate it into all sorts of our favorite dishes from jambalya, lasagna to spaghetti. Tonight I found a new go to spaghetti recipe. I was looking at the Johnsonville Sausage recipe collection on Allrecipes.com and told myself no way this recipe is too easy! First the recipe for Johnsonville’s One Pan Italian had less than 5 ingredients. Sausage, sauce, spaghetti and water all ingredients that can be adjusted to your own taste. I can cook the whole meal in one pan. No boiling water, no strainer, just one dish. Plus it is ready in less than 30 minutes! I am sold and I was ready to try this recipe out!
It started this easy. Less than 5 ingredients!
A pan, a box of spaghetti and a package of italian sausage. We like Hot italian sausage but the original recipe calls for mild sausage. I chose to skip a step instead of uncasing the sausages and used the ground .
Brown the sausage and then drain off the grease.
Next add 1 jar of sauce and 3 cups of water. I like to add water to the sauce jar to make sure I get all of the saucy goodness out.
Bring the sausage/sauce mix to a boil and break spaghetti (I used a full box) in half and simmer for about 10 minutes. Most of the water will be absorbed as the noodles cook.
There you have it. Sprinkle some parm on top and serve.
My kid’s loved it so much they ate it all scraping the pan clean. Well they tried.
