Servings: 4
Hot Italian sausage
1 lb., loose, removed from casings
Olive oil
2 tbsp., plus more for serving
Linguine pasta
12 oz., broken into half
Low sodium chicken broth
2 cups
Marinara sauce
1 ¼ cups
Fresh basil

Parmesan cheese

½ lb., sliced thinly
  1. Using the sausage, form 16 1 ½-inch meatballs.
  2. Prepare a large skillet and heat it over a high heat.
  3. Add olive oil and meatballs.
  4. Sear and when the meatballs release from the skillet, cook for about 2 minutes per side.
  5. Add the next three ingredients (from linguine to marinara sauce), bring the mixture to a boil, and cook for about 7-8 minutes, stirring continuously, until the noodles are al dente.
  6. Drizzle with olive oil, garnish with basil and parmesan, and serve immediately.
  7. If you want to, top the dish with mozzarella and put into a broiler for 3 to 4 minutes or until the cheese is golden and bubbling.
