Italian Sausage Cacciatore With Tomato Basil Toast

Total Time - 35 minutes / Makes 4 Servings

Cooking Sequence

  • Preheat oven; prepare pasta recipe through step 2 - 10 minutes
  • While pasta cooks, prepare toast through step 1 - 10 minutes
  • Complete pasta and bake/assemble toast; serve - 15 minutes

Italian Sausage Cacciatore

1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
1 lb Italian sausage links (mild or hot)
1 lb roast & steak topping vegetables (fresh sliced mushrooms, onions, bell peppers)
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
2 cups water
8 oz whole-grain penne pasta (2 2/3 cups)
1 (24-oz) jar specialty marinara sauce

  1. Preheat large sauté pan on medium-high 2-3 minutes. Place oil in pan, then add sausage; cover and cook 2-3 minutes, turning often, to brown all sides. Add vegetables, salt, and pepper; cover and cook 2-3 minutes, stirring occasionally, or until onions begin to brown.
  2. Stir in water and pasta; cover and bring to a boil. Cook 10 minutes, stirring occasionally at first, and then more often (to prevent sticking), until most of water is absorbed.
  3. Reduce heat to medium. Remove sausage from pan (let stand 5 minutes). Stir marinara sauce into pasta; cook and stir 4-5 minutes or until thoroughly heated.
  4. Slice sausage into circles (or bite-size pieces) and stir back into pasta. Cook 1-2 minutes or until thoroughly heated. Serve.
