Can't Stop Eating Kielbasa Spaghetti
- Ready In:
- 16 ounces kielbasa, sliced (your favorite brand and flavor, comes precooked)
- 1 medium onion, diced
- 4 garlic cloves, minced
- 15 ounces diced tomatoes
- 4 ounces tomato paste
- 14 1⁄2 ounces beef broth
- 2 tablespoons dried basil
- 1 teaspoon marjoram
- 1 teaspoon thyme
- 1 tablespoon oregano
- 1⁄4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
- salt and pepper
- 1⁄2 lb cooked angel hair pasta (or any pasta you like)
- Slice kielbasa into bite sized pieces and saute over medium high heat in a dutch oven or large pot. Stir occasionally until browned on both sides and slightly caramelized. Remove from pot, cover, keep warm.
- Using the juices from the kielbasa, sauté onions until soft (add a little oil if needed) and just as onions become soft, add garlic and sauté 1 minute.
- Add diced tomatoes, tomato paste, and beef broth. Stir until combined.
- Add spices and return kielbasa to pot. Bring to a slight boil then simmer over low heat for 30-60 minutes.
- Prepare the pasta according to package directions about 10-15 minutes before meat sauce is ready. When ready to serve, combine pasta and meat sauce and serve with garlic bread. If you prefer, you can serve the noodles plain with the meat sauce on top of it.

I started cooking just by helping my Mom out in the kitchen as a little girl. I preferred baking over cooking, as I loved getting all into measuring things and stirring. I always got to stir! However in the past 5 years I've been the one responsible for making nightly dinners. At first this consisted of the same 10 or so dishes in a constant rotation, but that quickly became boring and I remembered how much my Mom would complain when I was younger about how she always made the same things and she never knew what new dishes to try! Obviously 20 years ago, Zaar wasn't around! I still cook a lot of the same type of dishes my Mom cooked when we were younger and I try to incorporate as much fresh fruit, vegetables, and herbs into my meals as possible. However Melvin's favorite food of all time is fried chicken so... I make sure he gets a fresh vegetable on the side! My favorite cook book is my staple cookbook which is the old red and white Better Homes Cook Book. My only pet peeve about cooking is bland food! <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/adoptedspring08.jpg">
