Easy Italian Dinners

Dinnertime. It usually comes with that favorite question heard from many a hungry eight-year-olds. "What's for dinner?!" And sometimes my only response is "I have no idea." But the Italians were on to something. Some pasta, with tomato sauce and a bit of filling such as cheese and sausage or beef and you have a delightful easy meal.

Thus, I've taken to stocking my pantry with different types of pasta, canned tomatoes and sauces and a selection of beef or sausage in the freezer. In a pinch I can bring it all together and turn out some pretty tasty dinners any Italian momma would be proud of. Here are a few easy Italian-inspired meals to add to your recipe box.

Spaghetti Pie

Spicy Crockpot Spaghetti Sauce

Stuffed Manicotti

Spaghetti & Meatballs

Rigatoni w/ Fresh Tomatoes & Pancetta
