The Jeanie Jo & Joanna Project Recipe 3 of 312.

This recipe reminds me of Beans and Ham-hocks except these were not tasteless, this was surprisingly delicious and a perfect pairing with the cornbread as mentioned in the cookbook.

I will note that I soaked these beans over night and found they did not need the full 3 hours of cooking as stated. I checked them each time I stirred to ensure they would not become too soft.

I recently read about the history of Black Eyed Peas and how it became tradition to eat them on New Years Day for good luck. So I was ecstatic to find a recipe which included these beans to serve on this holiday. This will be a new January 1st tradition in our family.

My husband gave them a four (because of the pork shoulder) 🌻🌻🌻🌻

My daughter not being a big meat eater also gave it a four (because I gave dad most of the pork) 🌻🌻🌻🌻

I give it a five for its simplicity and fond memories of my childhood. 🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻

Simple Meal Planning - Plan to Eat

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

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!
