Chicken Parm with Spaghetti and Sausage Marinara

On Monday, I had a craving for chicken cutlets, so I made a double batch. We had just enough left over to have Chicken Parmesan tonight! I also had a little frozen marinara sauce, so I defrosted it in my small crockpot. I heated up the cutlets, spread on some sauce and topped with Italian blend cheese. Popped it under the broiler and it was done!

On the side, I served spaghetti with a sausage marinara that I made fairly quickly. I was really happy with the end result.

Italian Sausage Marinara
A Running Mama original recipe

1 lb Italian sausage

5 garlic cloves, minced
1/2 tsp red pepper flakes

dried basil
salt and pepper

Heat EVOO over med heat. Add sausage and brown. Add garlic, onions and red pepper flakes, cook until onions are soft. Season with salt and pepper.

Add crushed tomatoes, diced tomatoes and red wine. When sauce begins to bubble, reduce heat to low and simmer. Season with a generous amount of dried basil along with salt and pepper to taste. Serve over pasta
