How To: Fast Sunday Gravy

Okay, okay, I know its not Sunday...but this dish is too good to wait 5 more days to make (not to mention I want to use my Italian sausages I got at the farmers market)!


6 gloves garlic, minced

4 Italian sausages, spicy if you dare

1/4 yellow onion chopped

1 tablespoon olive oil

1 can of marinara or spaghetti sauce (I used Trader Joe's Low Fat Tuscano Marinara Sauce)

Romano or Parmesan cheese (optional)

Start by using a deep sided pan on med heat. Saute the garlic and onions in olive oil until partially wilted. Add and brown the Italian sausages. Once your sausages are toasty on both sides (and you are driving everyone batty with their heavenly smell) your onions and garlic should be done and looking wilted/transparent. Add the can of marinara sauce and reduce the heat to low. Cover.

Serve over your favorite pasta, top with grated Romano or Parmesan cheese and enjoy!

*Can be made ahead and kept in an air tight container in your fridge for a few days, or frozen to enjoy at your leisure.

**Add extra seasonal nummies like fresh summer squash, mushrooms, eggplant, fresh basil for an added layer of flavor!
