Prep Time30 mins
Course: Entree
Cuisine: Italian
Servings: 6

Ingredients

  • 7 ounces edamame pasta
  • 2 cans San Marzano Whole Tomatoes 16 ounce
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 pound Paleo Grain Free Italian Meatballs RECIPE HERE
  • 1 pound Italian Sausage Option or Addition
  • 1 handful fresh basil if available
  • 8 ounces mozzarella cheese shredded
  • 8 ounces ricotta cheese
  • 1 teaspoon salt plus more for pasta
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper

Instructions

  • Add oil to heavy bottomed pan for sauce. Break tomatoes up with hands. Discard the small ends that don't break up. It's important here to use a high quality brand that specifically says San Marzano, so you don't end up with a lot of pulp.
  • Cook on medium for thirty minutes.
  • Use a blender or immersion blender to make the sauce smooth.
  • If using Italian sausage, fork, and bake for twenty minutes at 400 degrees.
  • Add meatballs and sausage into sauce, while pasta is cooking.
  • Cook pasta according to directions.
  • Drain pasta, arrange in baking dish, with sliced meatballs and or sliced sausage, ricotta cheese. Sprinkle with parmesan or pecorino romano. Top with mozzarella.
  • Bake at 375 degrees F. until cheese is completely melted, about twenty minutes.

Notes

You can use a canned sauce or your own favorite tomato sauce. I like this as it's so fresh tasting, easy and doesn't have sugar or additives. 
You can skip the meat or add it in however you choose. 
You can make your own decision as to how much ricotta cheese to use. 
This is a very easy recipe to make your own.
