Creamy Sausage and Tomato Pasta Recipe

Looking for a quick and simple dinner recipe, the whole family will love? This Creamy Sausage and Tomato Pasta recipe, is calling your name. It is so easy and tastes amazing.

I am one of the biggest pasta lovers I know. I can’t get enough of Italian food. I told my husband that I needed a trip to Italy, just for the food. Then another one to see all the things.
We love eating at Italian restaurants but lately I feel like the meats and sauces are tasting a little on the bland side. Like everything needs some more flavor and a richer taste.
Instead of going out for Italian this week, we decided to make our own dish at home.
I had some Italian sausage on hand, and decided to use it in place of a different ground meat, and was highly pleased. It was simple, delicious, and full of flavor, that was lacking in our favorite Italian restaurants.
My kids also loved this dish, and ate the entire thing.

what could i pair this recipe with?

I love pasta. If I could live anywhere in the world, it would probably be Italy, so I could eat homemade pasta day in and day out, for the rest of my life.

Not only that, but they have some amazing bread and sweets there as well.

Here are a few of my favorite side dishes to pair with this pasta dish:

We also love to serve our bread and pasta with salad. Here are a few of our favorite salad recipes:

You could really pair it with any vegetable, but a nice fresh crisp salad with some Italian dressing has got to be my favorite combination with this pasta.

I also like to dip my bread in both the pasta sauce and the salad dressing. You can’t go wrong with salad, pasta, and bread.

  • 12 ounces Penne pasta
  • 1 pound Turkey Italian Sausage
  • 1 medium onion (chopped)
  • 3 cloves garlic (minced)
  • 1 (16 ounce) can Italian-style diced tomatoes
  • 1 (8 ounce) can tomato sauce
  • 1 cup half-and-half
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil leaves
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan (for topping)


  1. Cook the pasta in salted water Al Dente, according to package directions.
  2. While pasta is cooking, brown the sausage and drain grease.
  3. Add the onions and garlic to the sausage and saute for a couple of minutes.
  4. Pour in the entire can of diced tomatoes and the tomato sauce and heat through.
  5. Pour in the half-and-half and heat through. The longer you cook the sauce the thicker it will get so simmer it until it is the consistency you want.
  6. Add the basil and let it simmer for a few minutes.
  7. Finally, mix the sausage sauce with the pasta.
  8. Top each serving with a sprinkle of Parmesan cheese.


Serve with garlic bread and side salad.

    This is a very simple, and quick recipe. It's perfect for busy nights when you need dinner on the table quick. It's delicious of course, and the kids love it too. I served it with some garlic bread. Yum! One thing I changed was that I used 1 lb of ground Italian sausage. After reading the recipe, I found absolutely no reason to use the links, but to each their own. I like the ground stuff for things like this.
  2. Interesting, this recipe is just about word for word the same as this recipe from a different blogger which was posted months before this was.... but I don't see this credited anywhere in this blog.
