I mean, look at the dish above– a complete winner! It’s a Spicy Sausage Pasta, and my version isn’t too much different than the original, but why try to mess with perfection? So so so good. And it’s all cooked in one pot, which means clean up is also simple.

    My kids would gobble this down. My toddler would eat this just because it has cheese. She’s been cheese obsessed lately. Thanks for the recipe.
