Delicious Spaghetti in a Heartbeat

by Nikki A. Richards
(Carrollton, Georgia)

My entire family loves anything Italian, especially spaghetti. In our busy world we don't always have the hours it can take to make it from scratch. I created this recipe after experimenting with several different ingredients and this was the one my family went crazy over. It's now our family favorite and everyone always asks for the recipe. They can't believe how fast and easy it is to make. You can feed a crowd on the shortest notice, and expect raves.

If you want to make the sauce a day ahead and refrigerate, the flavor even improves. This way you can spend time with your guests, not slaving in the kitchen.

INGREDIENTS

  • 2 large jars of your favorite spaghetti sauce
  • 4-5 large cloves of garlic, chopped
  • 1 onion, chopped very small
  • Olive oil for frying
  • 1 pkg of Sweet Italian sausages (5 in a pkg)
  • Parmesan cheese for serving
  • 1 box (1 lb) Angel Hair pasta

    PREPARATION

  • In a Dutch oven, or large heavy sauce pan, saute' the garlic and onions in 2-3 Tbs of olive oil until soft and clear, do not brown.
  • Add the jars of spaghetti sauce and bring to a boil; immediately lower heat to a simmer and add the the whole sausages.
  • Bring back to a simmer, cover and cook for 20 minutes.
  • Meanwhile cook the Angel Hair pasta according to pkg instructions.

    Serve the sauce over the pasta and place half a sausage on the side of each plate. Offer Parmesan cheese at the table.

    A tossed green salad with your favorite dressing and hot garlic bread completes the dinner.

    Note: You may also add chopped black olives or canned sliced mushrooms to the sauce, if you desire.

    Makes 10 servings

    Wow, is this a keeper!
    We had a group for dinner last night and my husband (yes, he did the cooking!) had this on the table in 45 minutes. The Italian sausage with the added onions and garlic makes for a delicious blend of flavors that everyone is still talking about. Left overs...what left overs?
    I'm emailing this recipe to everyone I know.

    You were right about the raves. I'll never make it any other way.

    In these times it is a challenge trying to find ways to feed a large number of people, for the least amount of money possible. The ingredients in this recipe only costs a few dollars and tastes delicious. What you don't use is easily frozen and ready for another meal when you don't feel like cooking. It only takes a short time to prepare.

    My family and friends loved it.

    Don't forget to have several copies on hand of this recipe because I guarantee everyone is going to be asking for one.

    Good for a Crowd
    by: Sally

    This sounds like just the quick meal when our grown sons and their families come to visit. We all get together so seldom that no one wants to spend a long time in the kitchen but we all love Italian food. So this is perfect.
