  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 cup halved cherry tomatoes
  • 2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese

  • In a dutch oven or large skillet over medium-high heat, heat oil until shimmery. Add onion and garlic to pan and cook until lightly browned. Stir in chicken broth, pasta sauce, sausage, and pasta. Cover pot and cook over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally until most of the liquid has evaporated and pasta is tender, about 10-15 minutes.
