Pasta is always a huge hit in my house, and I love making it because it’s filling, easy on the wallet, and so versatile. It’s such a great comfort meal to make at home and share with your family. We have pasta a couple nights a week, and it never gets boring because it can easily be changed up by adding different meats, veggies and cheeses, and of  course, by choosing a different shape of pasta!

Finding the right pasta sauce for your pasta dish is of the utmost importance. A bland or watery pasta sauce will totally ruin your meal, which is why I love to use Ragu’s Homestyle pasta sauce. My pasta dishes come out great every time I use this sauce. It’s thick and hearty, and so flavorful! I love how it just hugs every noodle and packs a punch of flavor in every bite. There are several different varieties available, too, so you are sure to find just the right one to compliment your own pasta recipe. One more thing I love about this pasta sauce, is that it doesn’t have any artificial flavors, artificial colors or high fructose corn syrup!

Rotini with Italian Sausage, Peppers & Onions

For this Rotini with Italian Sausage, Peppers and Onions recipe, I opted to use the traditional variety, but I think any of them would work just fine.

This is one of my family’s favorite dishes, and I’m excited to share the recipe with you! I just love rotini, and so do my kids. They think those spiral shaped noodles are so much fun, and I think it makes for a very pretty pasta dish.
