Why I Love Field Roast Sausages

The star of this recipe is of course the Field Roast plant-based Italian sausage!! Have you tried it, or any other Field Roast sausage??

I know what you may be thinking…”but you’re not always a huge fan of grain-meat products due to the texture and taste…?” Well you’re completely right, which is why you know these sausages by Field Roast must be amazing for me to stand behind them and plan to make them a fridge staple in our house this summer!

Ingredients. The sausages are made with whole foods and contain no soy. They use fresh cut vegetables (such as eggplant, fennel, potato, etc.), dried fruits, and unique spice blends.

When you can look at the ingredients in a product, can easily count them, and know exactly what each one is, you know it’s going to be awesome! For me, that’s HUGE selling point when I’m deciding which products I’m going to stock in my fridge

Texture. Texture is key for me when it comes to grain meat products. It’s very easy to work these sausages into any of your dishes and cook them in a variety of different ways:

  • Crumble and sauté them on a pan stove-top till they brown up
  • Slice them and roast or broil in the oven
  • Grill in an open-fire for a BBQ

Flavor. Field Roast has three main flavors of plant-based sausages:

Each one is completely unique in taste. I love adding their Mexican Chipotle Sausage into breakfast scrambles, potato hashes, or even as a filling in tacos. They also have Frankfurters & an Apple Maple Breakfast Sausage if you want to keep it simple or are looking for another breakfast alternative.

Versatile. There’s really no wrong way to use and cook these sausages. They pair up well with a variety of different cuisines and dishes.

Here are some ideas on how you can use Field Roast sausages:

  • Throw them into pasta dishes
  • Make some tacos
  • Slice and add them into soups
  • Use them as a pizza topping
  • Crumble and make stuffed peppers or mushrooms
  • Mix them into any veggie sauté
  • Grill them up, serve in hot dog buns + add all the fixings


  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 cup chopped onion
  • 6 garlic cloves, finely chopped
  • 1 (14.5-ounce) can unsalted petite diced tomatoes, undrained
  • 1 1/2 cups unsalted chicken stock (such as Swanson)
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 8 ounces whole-grain spaghetti or linguine (such as Barilla)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 10 ounce fresh spinach
  • 1 ounce Parmesan cheese, grated (about 1/4 cup)

Like so many people, I absolutely love eating out! But with the wedding quickly approaching (3 months!), we’ve decided to challenge ourselves to only dining out once or twice a month. It’s a fun challenge, and an easy way to save some cash! So get ready to see A LOT more savory recipe around here! Especially pasta recipes, which are kind of our weakness!

Speaking of pasta, allow me to introduce you to today’s brand new recipe: rigatoni with sausage, tomatoes, and zucchini! It’s total comfort food and the perfect pasta dish for those nights you want something restaurant quality without leaving the house! I’ve been enjoying the leftovers for lunch this week and I’m going to be so bummed when I finally run out! The base is a fresh tomato sauce that’s loaded with sausage and zucchini. But it’s not a marinara sauce! Instead it’s made from 2 pints of juicy grape tomatoes, white wine (or chicken broth) and a little tomato paste. It’s a little lighter than the typical red sauce – and WAY lighter than my hearty baked rigatoni with beef! – making it perfect for Summer! Also perfect for dipping a piece of garlic bread or a few garlic knots. NOM.


Bring a medium pot of salted water to a boil. Meanwhile, heat the oil in a large, heavy skillet over medium-high heat until shimmering hot. Add the sausage and cook, stirring occasionally, until browned, about 3 minutes. Add the mushrooms, scallions, rosemary, red pepper flakes, 3/4 tsp. salt, and 1/2 tsp. pepper and cook, stirring often, until the mushrooms soften and start to brown, about 3 minutes. Add the tomatoes and chicken broth, bring to a boil, and then cover and reduce to a gentle simmer. Cook until the sausage is heated through and the flavors are melded, about 5 minutes.

Meanwhile, cook the pasta according to package timing until it’s just al dente. Drain well and add to the sauce along with half of the Parmigiano. Cook over medium heat, tossing for 1 minute. Serve sprinkled with the remaining Parmigiano and some black pepper.

Tomato Basil Pasta Cream Sauce with Kielbasa Sausage & Mushrooms

Seriously! Fresh from the garden basil, creamy tomato sauce and butter sauteed mushrooms and kielbasa … mmm!


  • 4 Tablespoons Butter
  • ½ whole Onion, finely chopped
  • 16 ounces, weight Sliced Mushrooms
  • 5 cloves Garlic, Pressed
  • 14 ounces, weight Kielbasa Sausage, Thinly Sliced
  • 1 cup Green Onions, Optional
  • 2 teaspoons Salt
  • Cracked Pepper To Taste
  • 1 Tablespoon Italian Seasoning
  • 24 ounces, weight Classico Spicy Tomato Basil Spaghetti Sauce (no Worries, Not Spicy!)
  • 2 cans (15 Oz. Size) Tomato Sauce
  • 12 whole Fresh Basil Leaves
  • 1 sprig Rosemary, Snipped
  • ½ cups Cold Water
  • 4 Tablespoons Cornstarch
  • 1 pound Whole Wheat Linguini Pasta Noodles
  • 1 pint Heavy Cream


In a large pot, melt butter. Add white onion, mushrooms and pressed garlic. Add in the sliced sausage and cook until browned. Stir in green onions, if using (I have excess in my garden right now, so I put green onions in everything!). Stir in salt, seasonings and sauces. Slice basil in thin strips and stir in with the rosemary. Cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally.

Blend cold water and corn starch, then slowly stir into tomato sauce. Continue to stir as it heats and thickens (about 20 minutes).

Cook pasta, rinse and drain while you wait.

Whisk the heavy cream into the sauce and turn burner to medium-low heat. Simmer for 10 minutes.

Ladle sauce over noodles when ready to serve. Dig in. This is truly a delicious meal, worthy of company even!
