Sausage Pasta Recipe with Easy Homemade Sauce!

Sausage Pasta Recipe

I decided I needed to create a sausage pasta recipe while I was contemplating what meal I could create that would keep the whole family happy. Now that the summer is here, there is a definite preference for the adults to have salad instead of vegetables. However, my kids will not eat a salad for dinner. One will eat some tomato, one will eat some cucumber, but as a general rule, I could not set them down a salad for a meal.

I refuse to make separate meals for the kids. I know lots of people do it, but I never have and I’m not going to start now. The answer generally involves pasta. This way the kids can have a high carb meal that includes vegetables, and Mr C and I can have a little pasta with our salad.

Before I had children I always made my own pasta sauce. I had tweaked the ingredients until I had the perfect recipe. I don’t remember exactly what went in it, and back then I didn’t feel the need to write everything down! I do recall it involved a large slug of red wine! Now the kids are here I aimed for something simpler!

I think I did a pretty good job. Mr C returned home from work, and the first thing he said was, “Something smells good!” And everyone from my hubby to the toddler cleared their plates!
