Lynne is doing a happy dance!
Don’t you love it when you can do that?
I certainly do, and it doesn’t matter if it’s a weekday or weekend. There are nights I want to make something easy.
So, if I can serve my family a delicious dinner with fresh ingredients I feel good about then it’s a win! Bonus points for sure if I can make it in just one pan so there’s little cleanup, too.
SAVE THIS ONE POT SAUSAGE LINGUINE TO YOUR FAVORITE PINTEREST BOARD!
We’re big pasta eaters over here. My men mainly go for a more (said in my deepest voice) “manly” pasta as I like to call it – the rigatoni or penne-type noodles. I prefer the thin spaghetti, so that would be my choice. I just don’t like the thicker pasta.
Also, I must confess that if you’re going to give me any pasta, the pappardelle is at THE top of my list. A good bolognese with those babies and I’m one HAPPY girl!
There’s just something about those wide noodles that is just so comforting to me. Maybe it’s that Grandma made her Chicken Cacciatore with it, so I’m always transported back to her kitchen whenever I eat them.
Either way, whenever I see that pasta on the menu in a restaurant you can bet your bottom dollar that I’ll be ordering it!
Change up your One Pot Sausage Linguine –
- Add more spice to it! I used only 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes, but feel free to add more. The rest of my family enjoys a bit more of a kick, so if you’re like them, add 1/2 teaspoon or more even.
- Switch out the sausage for some chicken by using 1 lb. of boneless, skinless chicken breasts. Dice the chicken into bite-size pieces and cook through after you saute the onion and garlic, making sure it is no longer pink in the middle.
- Live dangerously and use yellow cherry tomatoes. HA!
Yes, you don’t need to go with the standard red ones. OR you could even do a mixture of BOTH! That would be cool, too.
- If you’d prefer not to use the chicken broth, plain ol’ water is fine, too. I just like the added flavor the broth added to it.
As I said before, one-pot meals are where it’s at.
Ok, maybe not really, but they sure do make life a whole heck of a lot easier. They’re so easy to make, can be put on the table in a flash, save money from buying take-out, AND clean up is a cinch- it’s just one pot!
One pot pasta and one pot recipes were all the rage a few years ago. All the “cool kids” were making them. haha
If you like Alfredo pasta, you’re going to love this One Pot Cajun Chicken Alfredo Pasta! The flavor in this must be amazing and so much better than your standard alfredo sauce.
