One Pan Garden Rotini with a Tomato Parmesan Sauce

This super easy dish has a sister that is by far our most popular dish! The One Pan Garden Rotini Alfredo is hands down our most viewed recipe with over 400 views! Wow! It truly is a super yummy and easy dish. I wanted to make something similar tonight, but wanted to use some of my gorgeous Garden Tomato Sauce because it is chock full of veggies! 

I’m coming off some downtime from a back injury and we haven’t really been eating all that healthy through the last few weeks so some veggie goodness was in store to keep us healthy and fight off all the icky winter sicknesses!

This dish is actually lower in fat as well since we used Chicken Sausage instead of beef or pork. Does it get much better than this? Can’t wait for these leftovers tomorrow!

Serves 4


  • 4 Johnsonville Chicken Sausage, Italian style, sliced
  • 2 Tbsp Grapeseed Oil
  • 1/2 Onion, finely chopped
  • 2 cloves Garlic, minced
  • 4 Cups Spaghetti sauce
  • 3 Cups Water
  • 8 oz Garden Rotini pasta
  • 1/2 Cup Parmesan cheese, shredded
  • Optional- diced green pepper and sliced mushroom

In a 9 inch skillet heat the oil over medium high heat. Add the Sausage and sauté until slightly browned. Add the onion and garlic and any other veggies. Sauté until slightly soft.

Add the water, tomato sauce, and pasta. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to medium and cover. Simmer for 15-20 minutes stirring occasionally until the pasta is al dente. Remove from heat and stir in Parmesan.
