Italian Chicken Sausage Pasta

For some reason this summer I haven't felt like cooking very much.  I've just resorted to hot dogs, burgers, pizza or other quick dinners.  Once I saw this recipe on pinterest I knew I had to make it soon.  It was so good!!

1 lb pasta, cooked according to package directions
2 tablespoons olive oil, divided
1 pound Italian Chicken Sausage, cut into 1/4 inch thick slices
1 1/2 cups alfredo sauce
2 cups marinara sauce
1 teaspoon ground dried oregano
1 teaspoon dried ground basil

Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil over medium heat in a large skillet. Add an additional tablespoon of oil if needed, and add sausage chunks. Add in oregano and basil and cook the sausage for 3-4 minutes, or until it starts to brown.

Stir in alfredo and marinara sauce and cook over medium heat for a few minutes. Reduce the heat to low and simmer for 15 – 20 minutes over low heat.  Add in cooked pasta and stir to combine.
