Easy Dinner (for a Crowd)

If you ever need an “emergency” dinner to throw together or a last-minute meal for a crowd, this pasta dish is it. With only three ingredients, all of which are easy to have on-hand (freeze the sausage and the pesto, both of which I get at Costco, surprise surprise), this filling, inexpensive, and sure-fire crowd pleaser will become a family staple, just like it has for us.
