Spaghetti With Italian Sausage

Total Time
Prep 10 mins
Cook 20 mins

Just made this one night when I didn't have any ground beef on hand. The kids were starving and the other ingredients are ones I keep on hand for quick meals with little fuss and easy clean up!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Slice sausage into "coins".
  2. Sauté sausage in olive oil over medium heat until starting to brown.
  3. If you choose to add the onion, remove sausage and cook onion until translucent.
  4. Return sausage to pan.
  5. Empty entire jar of sauce into pan.
  6. Add any spices you like to the pan at this time.
  7. Taste; once you have achieved the desired flavor let cook on a low simmer while your pasta cooks (according to the box directions).
  8. Serve and enjoy with a nice salad and some garlic or cheese bread.

Great recipe to jazz up your regular spaghetti & sauce dish. I've tried this recipe a few times & sometimes I add mushrooms, bell peppers & even finely chopped jalapenos. I usually add the basil, oregano & garlic & sometimes abit of italian/sicilian spice also. This is a wonderful recipe when you don't have time to make spaghetti sauce from scratch but still want it to taste as though you did, thanks for sharing.
