Greek Pasta with Sausage Recipe

I am not sure if I have mentioned this much before, but I am part Greek Orthodox. One of my favorite Greek meals growing up was Greek Meatballs. I love the sauce. Even though it is traditionally used for meatballs, I like to use it for sausage and pasta. It is a very thin sauce. Here is my recipe for “Greek Sausage Pasta”.

What You Need:

  • 1 Box of Pasta – I use Penne and Bowties – it is how my daughters like it. But you can use any pasta.
  • 4 Sausage Links – I prefer Mild or Sweet
  • 1/2 Stick of Butter
  • 1 Can of Tomato Sauce
  • 1/2 Cup Vinegar
  • 1 Tsp Cinnamon
  • Oil
  • Salt
  • Pepper

Greek Pasta

Directions

  1. Cook pasta according to directions on the box.
  2. In a frying pan, cook sausage links in a little bit of oil until they are no longer pink. Cut them in to slices and set them aside.
  3. Melt butter in a small saucepan. Let it brown slightly.
  4. Shut off heat.
  5. Add can of tomato sauce. Sprinkle in salt & pepper to taste – stirring.
  6. Add vinegar and cinnamon.
  7. Turn on heat and simmer for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  8. Combine pasta, sausage, and sauce.

  1. This sounds so good -- if someone made it for me. I'm hesitant with the vinegar. I've never personally cooked anything that required vinegar as an ingredient.
