Oooooh...Now That Was a Bit Spicy!

So all during church today, I was CRAVING my spaghetti.  I LOVE my spaghetti.  It's my mom's recipe, tweaked to how I love it.  Anyhow, after we arrived home, I quickly began making the good stuff.  Instead of our typical Sunday morning biscuits and gravy, we had this yummy food.  I wish I'd taken a picture of it, but I didn't, so this this will have to do. 

It was soooooo good....but soooooo spicy!  I've never made it so spicy before.  I don't know what happened.  I think I either both a package of spicy sausage or I added too much pepper.  Even still, it was yum-o-la.

Either way, I thought I'd post the recipe in case anyone wants to make a yummy homemade spaghetti sauce. It's super easy and tastes phenomenal.  I like to add a dollop of sour cream to the center of my plate once it's dished up.  I stir it in and it makes my sauce kind of like a bolognese - creamy and all.  Yummy!

So, here's the recipe...

Kristin's Super Easy Sausage Spaghetti

2 lbs bulk mild italian sausage
1 medium onion, diced
1 green pepper, deseeded and diced
56 oz tomato sauce (seven 8 oz cans)
Garlic salt
Black pepper
1 to 2 lbs dry or fresh spaghetti
Olive or vegetable oil

In a large pot, brown the sausage, along with the onion and green pepper, garlic salt and black pepper.  I have no idea how much garlic salt and black pepper.  Probably 1 teaspoon pepper and 1/2 tablespoon garlic salt.  Drain any remaining grease.  Add the tomato sauce, stir well.  Taste and season as needed. 

In another pot, begin cooking enough spaghetti for those eating - 1 to 2 lbs - according to package directions.  I always add a little olive or vegetable oil to keep it from sticking once it's drained.  Once pasta is finished cooking, drain well and return to pot.  At the top of the sauce that is in the other pot, some of the liquid portion of the sauce will have risen to the top of the top.  Carefully ladle that portion (about 3 ladles full) into the drained pasta.  Stir/toss pasta well to coat all sides. 

Serve pasta in a large bowl with sauce separately in another, along with yummy garlic bread and green salad.  Yum!!

Looks good! Getting older I don't think I can do really spicy anymore. I am sure it was delish!
