Quick and Easy Tomato & Sausage Pasta Dish Recipe

This pasta. THIS pasta! Sometimes I spend a lot of time and resources making a meal, and it bombs. And it’s disappointing. Other times, the amount of work I put in is pretty equal to the enjoyment. Then there’s that rare occasion that I throw something together, and it’s a HUGE hit.

It always feels a bit like I cheated because I usually don’t do much, but I get a lot out of it (like kids who don’t fuss the entire dinner — that’s always a great thing). This 30 minute simple roasted tomato and sausage pasta is one of those meals that kind of makes itself, but everyone really loves. It’s the perfect salute to summer.

I roast just about everything, but roasting tomatoes was new to me. Like most everything else, it makes them sweet and perfectly tasty. Add some good olive oil, garlic, and sausage to the mix, and you have yourself a pasta dish that comes together without much work on your part. It tastes like you spent hours over a pot of sausage pasta sauce, but it takes less than 30 minutes to get it on the table. Serve it with some bread, a side salad, and some fresh fruit (we had cantaloupe from the garden), and you have a really quick meal the whole family will love.

Are Roasted Tomatoes Good for You?

Tomatoes are a good source of antioxidants, and roasting them may actually boost their antioxidant power! Plus, they’re a veggie, so c’mon. These guys are healthy as can be.

What Kind of Noodles Do You Use in This Sausage Pasta Dish?

You can use any noodles you like, whole wheat or regular, for this recipe! We really like and have had great luck with penne because it’s about the same size as the pieces of roasted tomato.

How Long Does Pasta Last in the Fridge?

Pasta stores well in the fridge for up to 3 to 4 days. You can also freeze this pasta for up to 3 months, but the tomatoes may be a little bit softer once you thaw and reheat them.

This Roasted Tomato & Sausage Pasta recipe is the easiest comfort food you will ever make, and it tastes wonderful! If you appreciate Italian cuisine, this pasta dish is the perfect meal. And it only takes 30 minutes to make!



For the tomatoes:

  • 1 to 1 1/2 pounds tomatoes, cut into 1/2 inch pieces
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 to 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper

For the pasta:

  • 1 pound pasta, like penne (whole wheat or traditional)
  • 1 pound ground sausage (traditional, hot, Italian — use what you like)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/4 cup fresh basil, chopped (or 1 tablespoon dried)
  • Fresh parmesan
  • Additional salt and pepper, to taste


  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F., and line a rimmed baking sheet with foil. Spread the chopped tomatoes on the foil, sprinkle on the minced garlic, drizzle with the olive oil, and then add the salt and pepper. Place the tomatoes in the hot oven, and roast for 15 to 20 minutes.
  2. While the tomatoes are cooking, cook your pasta al dente, according to package directions.
  3. In a large skillet, cook the sausage until it is no longer pink. When the pasta and tomatoes are both done, add them both to the skillet with the sausage. Add the olive oil, salt, pepper, and basil. Stir until well combined. Serve right away with grated fresh parmesan and more salt and pepper to taste.

  1. I love how easily this came together. The flavors mixed together so nicely! Definitely will make this again!

  2. I made this and it was a hit, two adults and a 10 year old. I didn’t have ground sausage so took the casings off two large sausage and broke those up. I also held the second amount of salt that you have added to the pasta mix. yummy, thank you, making it again tonight.

  3. Gotta love a good pasta. Roasted tomatoes are wonderful, have you tried roasted asparagus? That’s one of my favorites!

  4. This looks outstanding – definitely my kind of pasta dish! Oven-roasted tomatoes pack so much flavor, and it’s really such a simple thing to do. I love how quickly and easily this dish comes together, and I can absolutely see why it was such an immediate hit for your family! Don’t you love when, effortlessly, a new family fave is born!?!? 😀 ~Shelley
