Quick Dinner Idea: Spaghetti With Italian Sausage and Bacon Wrapped Asparagus

I have lots of chores to do the entire day that by dinner time I've ran out of energy already. So, I have a few quick dinner ideas up my sleeves. Something that's so easy to do but yummy at the same time.

This recipe is very easy, it is literally just tossing things together in the pan and Voila! Dinner!

Spaghetti With Italian Sausage

Ingredients: (serves 2)

A handful of Spaghetti pasta
2 cups of Ragu Pasta Sauce Meat (or any pasta sauce of your choice)
2 Italian Sausage
2 Tbsp Vegetable Oil


1. Cook the spaghetti pasta according to the packaging. Drain and set aside.

2. Slice the Italian sausages to bite size and fry them in oil.

4. In a sauce pan put the pasta sauce and add the fried sausages and simmer for 5 minutes.

5. Put the cooked pasta in the serving plate top with sauce and sausage. Garnish with cheese of your choice.

Bacon Wrapped Asparagus
(grilled/oven baked)


1 1/2 lbs Asparagus spears trimmed to 4-5 inches tips
Extra-Virgin Olive Oil
Black Pepper
4 slices Bacon


1. Preheat oven (if using) to 400 degrees F.

2. Lightly coat asparagus spears with extra-virgin olive oil and season with pepper and salt.

3. Divide the total by four. Gather that number of spears and use the bacon to wrap the bundle and secure the spears together. Repeat with the remaining ingredients.

4. To grill, place bundles on the hot grill and cover. Cook for 10-12 minutes or until the bacon is crisp and asparagus are tender.

For oven preparation, place bundles on slotted broiler pan and bake for 12 minutes.
