Here’s a great dinner dish that’s quick and easy to make with plenty of spice. Impossible™ Sausage Made From Plants (Spicy) is tossed with corn fresh off the cob, juicy, ripe cherry tomatoes, and perfectly al dente pasta.
This is a dish that has several elements cooking at once. Start the pot going for the pasta and while the pasta is cooking, start your bread crumbs if you’re toasting them yourself. While the bread crumbs are in the oven and the pasta is boiling, sauté your Impossible Spicy Sausage in a large pan with oil. Then combine several ingredients (including some of the pasta water) to prepare the sauce. Impossible Spicy Sausage already has a little bit of heat, but you can always level it up with additional chili flakes. With a bit of multi-tasking, this delicious meal can be ready in about 20 minutes.

- 3 Tablespoons Extra virgin olive oil, divided
- 1 Pinch Kosher Salt, plus additional to taste
- 1 Pinch ground black pepper
- 1 Cup Chopped Parsley, plus additional leaves for garnish
- 12 Ounces Pasta such as Gemelli, Cassarecia, Orecchiette, or Penne (fresh or great quality dried)
- 1/2 red onion, finely diced
- 1 Clove Garlic, finely chopped or microplaned
- 2 ears corn, shucked, kernels removed from the cob

Make the bread crumbs
Preheat oven to 375°F. Toss the diced French bread in a bowl with two tablespoons extra virgin olive oil. Add a pinch of salt and pepper. Spread evenly on a baking sheet. Cook until golden brown and crispy, about 10-12 minutes. Remove and add half the parsley while still hot; set aside.
Boil the pasta
Place a large pot of water seasoned with salt on the stove and bring to a boil. Add the pasta to the water and cook according to package directions or until al dente. Drain, reserving a half cup of the pasta water.
Cook the Impossible sausage
While the pasta is cooking, add the remaining one tablespoon olive oil to a 10-12 inch sauté pan over medium high heat. Drop heaping tablespoons of the sausage into the pan (about 20 spoonfuls). Cook until brown on both sides, about 2-3 minutes. Remove sausage from the pan, and set aside.
Cook the vegetables
Add the onions and garlic to the same sauté pan, reduce heat to medium-low, and cook for about 2-3 minutes until soft and translucent. Add the corn and cook for another 2 minutes, then add the cherry tomatoes and cook for an additional 2 minutes. Finish by adding the sausage and the reserved pasta water to the pan and bring to a boil. Add the cooked pasta to the pan, and combine thoroughly with the sauce. Turn off the heat.
Serve and Enjoy
Finish with remaining parsley and chili flakes if desired. Place into a large bowl or individual bowls and garnish with the seasoned breadcrumbs and parsley leaves.
