Italian Pasta

I have come to realize that Italian sausage makes every pasta dish instantly better. I honestly don't know how I used regular ground beef in pasta before. The flavor is just amazing and totally worth it.

I was a little bit nervous about this recipe as the only sauce was whipping cream, but it was still delicious! I know whipping cream isn't great for you, but for every once in awhile, this recipe is totally worth it.

Italian Pasta-Adapted from Pillsbury's 5 Ingredient, 15 Minute Recipes

  • 12 ounces uncooked pasta
  • 1 pound Italian sausage
  • 2 medium tomatoes, diced
  • 1 can artichoke hearts, drained and chopped
  • 1 can sliced black olives

  • 1/2 teaspoon Italian seasoning

In a large skillet, cook sausage until browned and drain. Return to skillet.
