2cupsdried pasta(preferably fusilli/rotini, penne or similar shape)
1 1/2cupsjarred marinara sauce(like Rao's arrabbiata if you like spicy or any good quality marinara sauce, see notes below on buying good quality sauce)
Kosher salt,to taste
Fresh basil,for garnish
Optional protein add-in:
1poundground turkey or ground chicken
Add all ingredients into a pot, stir, and let cook 12-15 minutes or until pasta is soft and sauce has thickened. Add more liquids if needed (if you're using thicker pasta shapes, you may need more liquid)
This pasta dish will be as good as the marinara sauce you use so don't cheapen out on the pasta sauce. I highly recommend using a brand like Rao's or Muir Glen. My favorite through and through is Rao's and will always spend the extra money for it!
