Directions

1. To make the sausage pasta skillet: Cook pasta according to package directions, until al dente. Drain and set aside.

2. Heat a bit of oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add sausages and cook until browned on all sides. You can add 1/4 cup (60ml) of water so they don’t blacken and stick to the pan. When the sausages are almost cooked, transfer to a cutting board.

3. In the same skillet (remove water but keep the brown bits), add 1 tablespoon oil and sauté onions with crushed fennel seeds, crushed chili pepper flakes, and Italian seasoning. Add the garlic, ground tomato and continue to sauté for a couple of minutes, stirring constantly. Then add bell pepper and diced tomatoes and cook until vegetables are crisp-tender. Stir in broth and cook for another minute or so. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

4. Slice sausage into 1/4 or 1/2-inch pieces and add back to the skillet with other ingredients. Cook for 5 to 10 minutes, until sausage is cooked through and sauce is thickened.

5. Add pasta to the skillet and reheat for a couple of minutes, stirring gently to coat the pasta with the sauce. Garnish the sausage pasta skillet with basil, chopped scallion, and parmesan cheese. Enjoy!

What other readers say about this sausage pasta recipe

“Simple and so yummy!” – Sharon

“I made this on a Monday evening, a perfect weeknight meal, I only had access to pork sausages, tinned tomatoes, and I didn’t have fennel seeds or Parmesan cheese. It was very tasty, we loved it, it will be a regular go-to for me. I also topped with shredded cheddar cheese and garnished with parsley. I’m looking forward to making it again with different sausages” – New
