Two Timin' Pasta

I love my boys, I sure do, but boy sometimes do they test my patience. Seriously. Every time, literally every time, I am on Facebook, Twitter– you name it– they’re all up in my messages and who I’m talking to.


They’re so worried about what I’m doing. On the one hand I love them for their fierce loyalty to their Daddy. On the other hand, are you just that nosy? or do you really question my loyalty? LOL.

In honor of all that, I thought this recipe for Two Timin’ Pasta would be appropriate. They smirked at the name (and the inspiration), but they gobbled up the results!

  1. Too funny about the name of your recipe – but how appropriate. That’s nice your sons are interested in your blogging whether on Facebook or here. Sounds rich but good – I could easily eat a plate of this. Thanks for coming to Fiesta Friday!

  2. This looks good! What kind of Italian sausage did you buy? How did you cook it? It looks crumbled in your picture how did you get it that way? Thanks!

    1. Thank, Chris! I typically use ground Italian sausage, but you could also use whole sausages and just remove the meat from the casings. Cook it in a pan, just like you would ground beef, breaking it up as you go along into crumbles. Hope that helps!

  3. I think she wanted to know what kind of Italian sausage, mild, hot, honey garlic etc? Iā€™d like to know also.
    Thank you

    OMG!! This is SO good!! I used Fresh Thyme Farmer’s Market homemade Chicken Hot Italian Sausage. Easy, peasy and delish!!! I have found that either turkey or chicken Italian Sausage isn’t as hot as pork! Also isn’t as greasy. Will totally keep this recipe and I’m sure it will become a favorite!

    1. That thyme flavored chicken sausage sounds delish! It’s stayed on our family favorite list every since we first tried it.

    1. It’s so quick to whip up, I’ve honestly never made it ahead of time so I haven’t needed to freeze it. In theory though, just like my lasagnas is should freeze fine. Let me know if you try it!

  5. Did you cook the meat before adding it in the casserole dish? Iā€™m not a huge fan of Italian sausage so I was going to do half sausage half ground beef.

    I made this exactly as the recipe states, just added a little minced garlic and red pepper flakes. My family, including three picky eaters, devoured it! I’ve made it a couple times already, and my son recently requested it again, saying he was craving it! So, tonight it is! šŸ™‚ It is SO easy, quickly prepared, almost always have the ingredients on hand, and everyone loves it! Going into my favorites cookbook!

    I am a baked pasta addict! I gave this recipe to my husband to make, and he didn’t change a thing. He used rigatoni. The proportions of sauce, meat, and cheese were perfect. It tasted like something from an Italian restaurant! Thanks for sharing.

  8. Can you add veggies to it? I don’t want to ruin the cooking, if so, should it be like corn and green beans or cooked broccoli or mixed veggies? Please let me know ASAP lol, putting it together rt now, lol

    1. I’ve never added veggies to this dish, just served them on the side. We’ve done steamed broccoli, green beans, and mixed veggies all as sides. If you add them in, please let me know how it turned out!

    This is good but I knew I should have doubled the sausage. A pound of uncooked meat is pretty skimpy for a pound of pasta.

    1. Yes. If you follow the directions, it does state that the pasta should be cooked according to the package directions before including it in the recipe šŸ™‚
