One Pot Sausage Pasta (Perfect Weeknight Dinner)

sausage-pastaI have the flu, which is just awful. I’ve been sleeping for the majority of the last 48 hours and I can’t think about much besides laying down and going back to bed.

It’s these sorts of days when dinner is not even the last thing on my mind. It’s completely out of my mind. But we have to eat dinner. And on nights when dinner isn’t even in your mind, your family still has to eat too. Good thing for this one pot sausage pasta recipe. It’s easy enough that you can make it during the week, but delicious enough that your family won’t accuse you of slacking.
