Have you ever tried cooking pasta in the same pot as the sauce and its other ingredients?  Once you try it, you’ll never make pasta any other way!  This mouthwatering sausage pasta is ready in 20 minutes from start to finish, and you’ll have only one pot to clean – genius!

Easy 20-Minute One-Pot Sausage Pasta Recipe

This mouthwatering pasta is flavored with Italian sausage, sliced onion, garlic, tomato sauce and oregano – yum!  For a final touch, the Parmesan cheese is stirred in just before serving – OMG!  When the pasta is cooked together with all other ingredients, it allows the flavors to marry and seep deeply into the pasta – you will taste this complex delicious flavor in every bite.  If the pasta is cooked separately and the sauce is added later, what you get is the plain pasta with the sauce on top.  With this amazing one-pot dish, the flavor of sausages, onions, garlic, tomato sauce and oregano is actually cooked into the pasta!

Busy cooks will love the simplicity of this awesome recipe.  20 minutes from start to finish and just one pot to clean – let this be our little secret 😉  Unlike the traditional way of making pasta, there is no need to multi-task by boiling a separate pot of water for the pasta and cooking the sauce in a separate pot or pan.  There is no need to wash multiple pots, pans and dishes.  And best of all, there is no need to wrestle with the pot of boiling water to drain the pasta – the water in the sauce will reduce to just the right amount, while cooking pasta at the same time, so there is nothing to drain!

Here are all the ingredients for this super-easy pasta dish: spaghetti, sausage, onion, garlic, crushed tomatoes and Parmesan cheese.  Not pictured – water, salt and pepper 🙂

One-Pot Sausage Pasta Ingredients

For this recipe, I’m using Klements cooked Italian sausage made by Klement’s Sausage Company – this is a quality sausage that tastes amazing!  Klement’s Cooked and Smoked Sausages are created from old world European recipes that have been passed down for generations using only the finest ingredients, and they comes in a variety of delicious flavors!

Klements Cooked Italian Sausage

The Klement’s Sausage story began 60 years ago when three brothers – John, George and Ron Klement purchased a small sausage company in South Milwaukee. The word about the genuine, old country flavor spread quickly and before long, Klement’s was a favorite. They’ve grown a lot since that small 6-person operation, but haven’t lost sight of what made their family business a success. Hard work, dedication, and perfectly seasoned sausage – that’s a true recipe for success!  Look at all those seasonings inside this delicious sausage – they make soooo much difference in taste!

Step 8: Push Spaghetti Down Into The Pot

Using the spatula, push spaghetti into the pot.  Since the bottom of spaghetti started cooking and became soft, all spaghetti should easily be covered in liquid.

Step 9: Stir Every 2 Minutes

Reduce heat to simmer, and cook, stirring every 2 minutes.  You need to stir so the pasta doesn’t stick to the bottom of the pot.
