We have always been a long-time fan of pasta and a long-time fan of sausage. I don’t know why we don’t consider combining the two to make some dinner ideas, but I love that this simple recipe contains two of our favorite ingredients. We also like that it is very simple, does not require a lot of work, and is very suitable for busy families.

Storage skills + side thoughts
How do I store and reheat leftovers? Put leftovers in an airtight container and keep them in the refrigerator for 3-4 days. Reheat in the microwave, oven, or pan on the stove. The pasta may have absorbed some of the liquid, making it dry. Feel free to add a little cream before heating.
Can I freeze Italian sausage pasta? I recommend freezing the sauce without the pasta. Once the sauce has thickened, let it cool and then pour it into an airtight freezer-safe container. Freeze for up to 4 months.
Thaw on the stove top and keep stirring and heating at low temperature. Add a small amount of cream as needed to revitalize the sauce. Cook the noodles and serve.
What to serve with your spaghetti? So many choices, but here are some of our favorites…
