Pasta, pizza, and everything in between can be ready in 20 minutes or less with these quick and easy Italian recipes. By: Text: Jason Horn and Cooking Light staff
Italian sausage is tasty on its own, and simmering it in the soup gives every spoonful great flavor. This recipe is about as easy as it gets, and it's adaptable to whatever you have on hand. Any short pasta can replace the shells, any green can replace the spinach, and you can add pretty much whatever other ingredients you like. Try canellini or garbanzo beans instead of or in addition to pasta, or fresh thyme or oregano on top of basil.
