  • 1 large (gallon) freezer bag or reusable silicone bag

For serving:

  • 1 lb. linguine or other pasta
  • 7 oz. bocconcini cheese
  • fresh basil
  • optional: red pepper flakes


Assembly instructions:

  • Brown the sausage. If it is in the casing, uncase it first.
  • Place the browned sausage, minced garlic, chopped onion, sun-dried tomatoes, can of diced tomatoes, and seasonings in a large resealable freezer bag.
  • Remove the excess air and seal. Freeze.

Cooking instructions:

  • Remove the bag from the freezer to thaw.

  • While the pasta is cooking, heat the sauce over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally.
  • Serve the sauce on top of the pasta. Top with fresh bocconcini cheese, torn into bite-sized pieces, and fresh basil. I like to sprinkle mine with red pepper flakes as well.
