Sausage and Pasta

After my day in the city, I wasn't very inspired when it came to making dinner. So, I started poking around my kitchen to see what I could find. Suddenly, I remembered the bottle of Greek Seasoning My Sis-in-Law brought me from Penzeys!

With my Greek Seasoning waiting for it's place in dinner I pulled out some turkey sausage from the freezer and got some water boiling. I wanted a one-dish type of meal that would fill the bellies and maybe even create some lunch-worthy leftovers.

Dinner was on the table within about 30 minutes or so, Rachael Ray would be proud! When I opened the bottle of Greek Seasoning, I was struck by the heady aroma that hit me. The combination of oregano, garlic and lemon is a favorite of mine, and this seasoning blend will find many uses in my kitchen.

Sausage & Pasta
Source: PatsyK


  • 1/2 pound of penne pasta
  • about 1 pound of sweet turkey sausage
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 14 oz. can of diced tomatoes
  • 2 teaspoons of minced garlic
  • 1 tablespoon of Greek Seasoning (or any seasoning blend you like)


  1. Cook pasta according to package instructions. Drain and set aside.
  2. Grill the sausage links for about 10 minutes. It's ok if they are not fully cooked because they will continue to cook with the tomatoes. After removing them from the grill, slice into 1/2 inch slices.
  3. In a large saute pan, add the olive oil and heat over medium-high heat. Add the sliced sausage and garlic. Cook for about 4 minutes, then add the tomatoes and Greek seasoning. Allow to simmer while the pasta finishes cooking.
  4. Add pasta to the sausage mixture and stir to completely coat the pasta.

Very nice looking and sounding. My next door neighbor owns a fabulous Greek restaurant in town and they sell their spices...I always have it around and use it a lot. It is so versatile and the aroma....mmmmmmm!!!
