One-pot meals are great because they don’t dirty up lots of pots or dishes. The Ninja is great because you can cook like you would on the stove or in the oven without heating up the kitchen, all while using only one pot. This sausage and pasta recipe is very simple, and one that I have made many times on the stovetop. I had some sausage I needed to cook up and decided to make it in the Ninja. Here’s how I made it.
One-Pot Sausage Pasta Recipe For Ninja 3-in-1 Cooking System
- 1 lb Italian sausage links
- 1 lb pasta (I used rotini)
- 24 oz jar of chunky pasta sauce
- 24 oz water
- 3-4 oz shredded mozzarella cheese (or you could use grated parmesan if you prefer)
- salt and pepper to taste
Set Ninja to stovetop high.
Brown the sausage for about 3-4 minutes, making sure to flip over to get both sides.
Remove sausage from Ninja. Slice the sausage into bite sized pieces and return to Ninja.
Add the sauce and the water and bring to a boil.
Switch Ninja to stovetop medium and let simmer until the pasta is tender.
Serve immediately with a little shredded mozzarella on top, as well as salt and pepper to taste.
