It doesn't get much easier than this by cooking everything in one pot. Italian sausage and pasta sauce with spaghetti noodles that you can have on the table in less than 45 minutes. Switch it up by using ground beef, chicken, or turkey along with any other of your favorite ingredients, such as sliced mushrooms.

I am NOT a novice cook and it took 50 minutes to cook this and 3 cups of water. Total waste of time and effort. Read More

Excellent idea! In fact I did that very thing the other night before I ever saw this recipe. Why have we been messing with that large pot of water to cook pasta all this time?? It takes a little watching at first but so much easier to clean up. Try it you'll wish you'd been doing this all along. Read More

Very easy and quick. Best thing I noticed is that the sauce seeps into the noodles giving them more flavor and the sauce seems to stick to the noodles which is great if you like sauce and noddles in every forkful. Of course cleanup was easy too. Read More

We loved this. I added mushrooms and a can of tomatoes and extra pasta sauce and topped it with lots of shaved parmesan cheese. I will definitely make this again and again. I love one pot meals! Read More

Turned out delicious! I had 1.5 lbs of beef to use, added 2 tablespoons of Italian seasoning, and some salt and pepper. Cooked the garlic, then onion, then ground beef. Ended up not needing to cook as long with the pasta at the end, maybe only 12 mins or so. Sauce does cook down a lot so if you want it more saucy, add more to start. Will definitely make again!
