A simple recipe for spicy sausage ragu with minimal ingredients and lots of flavor!
I’ve been struggling a bit to figure out how to approach content this week with everything going on right now. Our hearts are heavy and talking about unnecessary purchases feels out of touch… but I also know that we could all use a little break here and there. I don’t have the answers, and I’m sure I’ll mess up (I have a sponsored post that has to go live this week!), but I’m going to do my best to spend some time with my content calendar, think before I post, and, as I mentioned here, listen more.
So, one thing that seemed to fit into this category is comfort carbs! This spicy sausage ragu is the type of recipe I wish I could make for every single person that could use a hug right now… because it tastes a hug in a bowl. It’s spicy and sweet and hearty… and because of the turkey sausage, it’s super filling, too!
spicy sausage ragu
1/2 tbsp olive oil
3 links of spicy Italian turkey sausage
1 onion, quartered
2 large carrots, peeled
3 cloves of garlic
24 oz can of crushed tomatoes
salt & pepper
1/2 lb pasta
Remove the sausage from the casing. Heat a pan with the olive oil. Add the meat and break it up as it cooks.
Meanwhile, add your onion, peeled carrots, and garlic to a food processor. Pulse until they are finely chopped.
Add to the cooked sausage and saute for 3-5 minutes over medium high heat.
Add the crushed tomatoes and season with salt and pepper. If you want it spicier, you can add red pepper flakes too. Simmer for 20-30 minutes so the sauce can thicken.
Boil the pasta until it is just al dente. Drain the noodles and add them right to the sauce. Allow the sauce and pasta to simmer together for a minute or two.
Serve with grated Parmesan cheese on top!
