From Simple and Delicious - submitted by Misty Church (Sept/Oct 2007 issue). Very nice meal to throw together in less than 30 minutes. It was a hit with our family!
- 8 ounces spaghetti, uncooked
- 1 1⁄2 cups frozen broccoli florets
- 1⁄2 cup sweet red pepper, julienned (yellow or green will work too or a combination)
- 1⁄4 cup onion, coarsely chopped
- 1⁄2 lb smoked sausage, cut into 1/2 inch slices
- 1⁄4 cup water
- 3⁄4 cup evaporated milk (I used non-fat)
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 1⁄2 teaspoon italian seasoning
- 1⁄4 cup parmesan cheese, grated
- Cook spaghetti according to package directions adding the vegetables during the last 4 minutes.
- Meanwhile, in a large skillet, bring sausage and water to a boil.
- Reduce heat, cover and simmer for 8 minutes or unti heated through.
- Add milk, butter and Italian seasoning; cook and stir until butter is melted.
- Drain spaghetti & vegetables and return them to the pan.
- Add Parmesan cheese and sausage mixture to the pasta & veggies - toss to coat.
- Serve immediately.
My family loves this, I had the issue of the mag. it came from and have made it more then enough times, I am glad to have found it on here because during our move I lost the magazine. I don't put the broccoli in there because my husband isn't a fan but its still great without it!
This was a great, quick meal for us on a busy night. I doubled the recipe, but used frozen spinach instead of brocolli, and omitted the peppers and onion (kiddos and hubby won't eat them). Everyone ate it up, and my 4-year-old said she loved it! One thing I would recommend is not over-boiling the sauce as I did, since it evaporated some and I would've liked it more saucy. Thanks for sharing this one, it'll become a part of our rotation!
This is such a joy to make for dinner after a day's work or shopping! DH and I love this dish. Made as directed with one small exception: to thicken up the sauce a bit, DH added a tablespoon of cream mixed with a tablespoon of arrowroot. Thanks, Hokieslady! Made for Zaar Stars.
