Penne & Sausage


This is adapted from “Not Your Mother’s…”. I halved the recipe b/c we always had too many leftovers, and tonight we had nothing leftover!

3/4 lb sausage
1/2 lb pasta (any cylindrical)
12-14 oz pasta sauce
12-14 oz water
(total liquid should be 26 oz)

1. Brown sausage and drain fat.
2. Spray crock pot with non-stick cooking spray.
3. Combine liquids in pot and stir.
4. Pour in pasta and stir.
5. Add browned sausage and stir.
6. Cook on low for 3.5 – 4 hrs. Stir after 1.5 hrs to prevent burning.
7. To serve, spoon into bowls and top with parmesan cheese.

I’ve made this with chicken and pork sausage and it was great either way. Don’t forget to stir, the pasta won’t cook evenly.

Everyone here loves this – KG cleaned her bowl!
