All you need is a large skillet and you’re set. You don’t even have to boil the pasta separately, it’s all done right in the skillet! Use your pasta of choice, gluten-free, whole wheat, anything goes! And you can create a vegetarian option by omitting the Italian sausage for a Meatless Monday meal.
24 ounces tomato sauce (omit seasonings below if sauce is seasoned)
1 ½ teaspoons oregano
1 ½ teaspoons basil
½ teaspoon red pepper flakes
8 ounces farfalle pasta (bowties)*
¼ teaspoon salt
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
¼ cup Parmesan cheese (more for serving)
1 cup ricotta cheese
In a large (5 quart/ 12 inch) skillet over medium high heat, add coconut oil and Italian sausage. Cook until sausage is nearly browned and cooked through, then add minced garlic.
Finish cooking the sausage with the garlic.
Stir in tomato sauce and seasonings (if sauce isn’t seasoned) to the cooked sausage.
Add in 2 cups of water and pasta to the skillet and bring to a boil.
Once it’s boiling, reduce heat to a simmer and cover.
Cook until pasta is tender, about 12 additional minutes (this will vary depending on the pasta you use).
When pasta is cooked, remove from heat.
Stir in mozzarella and combine.
Top with small mounds of ricotta cheese and Parmesan, cover and wait a couple of minutes for ricotta to heat and melt in.
Serve immediately with additional Parmesan cheese if desired.
*I personally use coconut oil but you can use your favorite cooking oil. Use bowtie pasta or whatever shapes you have in your pantry. This recipe doesn’t work well with spaghetti or angel hair pasta. You can use gluten free pasta as well. Cooking times will vary so please check your box.
Need to get supper on the table in 30 minutes? This Creamy Tomato Tortellini Soup is the answer to this mealtime dilemma.
We all have those evenings where we need to get supper on the table quickly. This recipe came about from exactly one of those nights. My kids love marinara sauce with tortellini. One evening, when I went to make supper, I found both these ingredients in the my pantry, but not enough tortellini to serve everyone. So, why not add more marinara? This soup came together quickly, with the Italian flavors and tortellini kids love. If you happen to have leftovers, they make a great thermos lunch for the next day.
