Italian Sausage One-Pot Sun-Dried Tomato Pasta

Serves 4-5

This is the dish to make when you need to do someone a solid. It comes together in a flash and cleans up with a quickness so you can totally offer to cook AND do the dishes! It only took us 30 minutes and we just about fit the whole dang food pyramid into one pot. Not to mention how freaking good it tastes. Grab some technology or even old-fashioned pen & paper, and make a grocery list – stat! Recipe adapted from The Veg Space.

Ingredients

  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 3 links (or more) ‘The Stallion’ Italian Sausage, cut into rounds
  • 1 onion, peeled and sliced 
  • 1 box (1 lb.) your favorite pasta shells
  • 8 oz. cherry tomatoes, halved 
  • 6-8 sun-dried tomatoes, roughly chopped 
  • 4 and 1/2 cups water
  • 2 tsp veggie stock powder 
  • 1/2 cup dairy-free cream
  • 1/2 cup fresh spinach

The How To

  1. In a large pot over medium heat, saute ‘The Stallion’ and the onions together until dat sausage is brown on both sides and the onions soften.
  2. Add your pasta, water, vegetable stock powder, cherry tomatoes, and sun-dried tomatoes. Bring that whole mess to a boil, then reduce to a simmer and cook for 12-14 minutes, until the pasta is cooked through.
  3. Finally, add spinach and cream. Stir together and allow to cook for 1 more minute. 
  4. Take a moment to marvel at that single pot of glory, make all your friends jealous on Instagram, then dig in!
