Super super simple meal to get on the table. This has to be one of the fastest crockpot recipes I make.
Not much more to say other than, go and make it and enjoy a nice big plate of pasta :)
Crockpot Sausage Rigatoni
- 1 pound sweet italian turkey sausages, casings removed and crumbled (I've made it using maple sausage too, it's good)
- One 26- to 28- ounce jar tomato pasta sauce
- 1 pound rigatoni, uncooked
- Freshly grated or shredded Parmesan cheese for serving
Coat the slow cooker with nonstick cooking spray.
In a medium-size skillet over medium-high heat, brown the sausage.
While the sausage is cooking, pour the pasta sauce into the cooker. Fill the empty jar with water and pour it into the cooker. Add the rigatoni and cooked sausage; gently stir with a rubber spatula to combine well. Cover and cook on LOW until the pasta is tender, 31/2 to 4 hours. Stir once halfway through cooking.
Do not cook more than 4 hours because the sides will dry out and burn. Serve immediately sprinkled with Parmesan cheese.
