- 1 28 oz can Italian Style crushed tomatoes (do not substitute
- with regular crushed tomatoes)
- 1 tsp garlic powder
- Salt and pepper
- Parmesan cheese
Instructions:Do Ahead Tip: Cut sausage before hand and store in a zip lock bag
Do Ahead Tip: Cook the pasta at home as directed on package.
Drain and rinse with cold water. In a large bowl add pasta and 2
Tbsp oil. Toss until evenly coated, seal in a zip lock bag and
store in cooler until needed.
Do Ahead Tip: Plan several pasta dishes and cook all the pasta at
once. Store each portion in a separate bag. Use a permanent
marker to write the name of the recipe each bag is intended for.
Before you prepare your meal remove the appropriate pasta bag
from the cooler and let it reach room temperature.
Heat 2 tablespoons oil in a large skillet on medium high. Add
sausage and brown evenly until cooked through. Drain grease; add
crushed tomatoes and garlic powder. Stirring constantly bring to
a boil and reduce heat to medium. Simmer until thickened about 5
to 10 minutes. Remove from heat and add pasta. Mix well. If your
skillet is too small to add the pasta you can mix all the
ingredients in a large bowl. The heat of the sauce will reheat
the pasta. Add salt and pepper to taste and serve with parmesan
