Sausage Spaghetti

A few years ago, I had Sausage Wraps on the menu. I loved eating them, yet they took so long to make; boiling, wrapping, stuffing, baking, basting … So, I opted to throw all of the ingredients into the skillet instead. What began as a simpler way to create a more difficult meal has become a family staple (with a few changes). As ground beef prices continue to soar and purchase limits are put in place due to COVID-19, it is time to be a little creative with the meats that we use in our meals. I share with you, Sausage Spaghetti to save the day!

What You Will Need

  • Your Favorite Refrigerated Sausage (Polish, Smoked, etc)
  • Your Favorite box of Pasta Noodles (Bow Tie, Penne, etc)
  • Green Pepper or 4-5 Mini Sweet Peppers
  • Your Favorite Jar of Simple Spaghetti Sauce (Tomato Basil is my favorite)
  • 2 Tablespoon starch water (reserved from cooked pasta noodles)
  • 1 Tablespoon Olive Oil
  • teaspoon garlic powder
  • teaspoon onion powder
  • teaspoon basil
  • teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • a pinch of salt
  • a pinch of pepper

What You Will Need To Do

  1. Gather ingredients listed above.
  2. Follow directions for box of pasta noodles. Reserve 2 Tbsp starch water for sauce. Set aside.
  3. Slice Sausage into bite size pieces. I like to use my Pampered Chef Quick Slice for quick equal size portions.

4. Slice 1 Green Pepper or 4-5 Mini Sweet Peppers.

5. Heat skillet on medium heat with 1 Tbsp Olive Oil.
6. Place sliced sausage and pepper in the heated skillet. Stir and flip until browned and peppers are ready to eat. I use my Pampered Chef Tongs (pictured below).

7. Add teaspoon garlic powder, teaspoon onion powder, teaspoon basil, teaspoon Italian seasoning, a pinch of salt & a pinch of pepper to the sausage and peppers.

8. Add jar of sauce to the skillet. Bring to a boil, then cover and simmer on low for about 5 minutes. Sauce should be nice and warm and have taken on some of the favors of the seasonings. Add 2 Tbsp starch water and stir.
9. Stir in pasta noodles to skillet.

10. I like to serve my pastas with homemade rolls and breads. Tonight, I served them with Garlic Knots from Joanna Gaines’ Cookbook Magnolia Table Vol 2

11. Simple & Scrumptious – Enjoy!
