What makes your mealtime Saucesome?  Mine is sharing a delicious meal with my family after a crazy day. This is the last day of school… as this weren’t enough, it is also an early release day. My schedule is full, yet I could not let the day finish without celebrating my children’s accomplishments.  To fit both my busy schedule and our celebration, I prepared a quick and tasty One Pot Sausage Pasta (Macarronada com Linguiça)…


… A complete dish with an extraordinary taste, made using everyday ingredients  — thanks to Ragú® Chunky Tomato, Garlic & Onion Sauce which has a delicious taste your whole family will love! By the way, Ragú® is recognizing and celebrating everything that makes family meal time Saucesome.  From unique recipes to silly moments to crazy weeknights…it’s all Saucesome with the delicious help of Ragú® Sauce.

Our One Pot Sausage Pasta is one of the easiest and most delicious dishes ever…  As in– “be a hero without putting a lot of effort into it”!  I am serious… All I had to do was lightly brown the sausage, sweat the onions, add milk, Ragú® Chunky Tomato, Garlic & Onion Sauce, pasta, salt, and cook everything together at once. To finish the dish, stir in cheese and sprinkle parsley on top. What could be easier than that?

  1. In a large saute pan, heat olive oil over medium high heat and lightly brown the sausage. Reduce heat to medium and sweat the diced onions for a couple of minutes, stirring occasionally (don't let them brown!).
  2. Stir in the the warm milk, tomato sauce, pasta, and salt. If desired, add either a pinch of ground black pepper or red pepper flakes depending on how spicy you prefer. Bring mixture to a boil, cover, and reduce heat to low. Simmer for about 13-15 minutes, or until pasta is al dente.
  3. Turn off the heat and stir in the shredded cheese. If desired, sprinkle about 1/2 cup of chopped parsley over the pasta and serve. Enjoy!

    “Saucesome” is one heck of an awesome word! 🙂
    Just when you think schools done and things will be relaxing they get super busy – so I am all about one pot meals like this one!

    This recipe is so good dear Denise! First of all, the make-all-in-one-pot scheme is super convenient and tidy: ) Second, mixing milk and tomato sauce makes a very interesting taste that is perfect for pasta. Third, it’s very easy with simple ingredients!
    Loved your photos again. We wish you a wonderful summer with the girls:)

    Oh, and you don’t have to cook the pasta in water. This is wonderful.

    We all need more one pot dishes in our lives! And who doesn’t love pasta? Or sausage? This is my kind of meal — loads of flavor, loads of easy. Thanks!

    Congrats on winning. You deserve it.
    I love a one pot dish like this, especially during summers. I enjoy ragu too, always have some on hand. Looks perfect.

      Thanks a lot for voting for my recipe, Ash!
      Me too. I love Ragu sauces as well because they’re delicious and affordable.

    This recipe is very easy, & it tastes great! One thing I would suggest is using a bit less milk. It was runny for my taste. But overall, this is a hit!

    • Denise Browning August 10, 2017 at 6:02 pm #

      Hi, Jess! Thanks a lot for trying this recipe. I am so glad that you enjoyed it. Thanks also for the suggestion.
      It is good to know you had a different result. In mine, it was not runny at all. Actually it was pretty creamy and thick. I think the size of the burner and temperature of each stove top makes the difference. Wishing you a great evening!

    This looks SO GOOD! Just wondering if it would work well with 2% milk. There must be a reason that you specified whole milk.

    • Denise Browning April 20, 2018 at 8:17 am #

      Hi Dori! You are right! The reason why I specify whole milk is because this is one of those recipes that fat influences the creaminess of the dish. You can make with a 2% milk — just be aware that the dish neither will taste the same nor the sauce will be creamy as when made with whole milk. Wishing you a delicious day!
