PREPARATION
1.
Cook the sausages first, as they need the most time. I just pour some olive oil in a deep pan, then brown them over medium heat. Once the outside is cooked, I pour the jar of marinara over them and let that simmer on medium/low for 20 minutes.
2.
Cook the pasta in a large pot of boiling water with some salt.
3.
That's it! See notes on how to serve.
NOTES, TIPS, TRICKS, HINTS, ETC:
1.
Since this is for my children, we serve everything a la carte. They get a plate of {p}asta, with a sliced {p}ork italian sausage on the side. They are free to add, or not add, {p}esto, {p}eas, {p}armesan, and/or {p}ine nuts.
2.
Marinara is optional. If they want it (which they never do), i just spoon it over the pasta.
3.
I usually mix the {p}esto in with the {p}enne {p}asta if they want {p}esto.
4.
{P}armesan goes on top.
5.
{P}eas go on the side.
6.
{P}ine nuts either get mixed in or set in a small dish off to the side.
