|Simple Italian Sausage Spaghetti Dinner|
Ingredients[edit | edit source]
- 8 ounces whole grain thin spaghetti
- 1 tsp olive oil
- 1 small onion
- ½ pound mild or hot Italian sausage
- ½ cups red or dry white wine
- 2 cans (28 ounces) no-salt-added diced tomatoes
- 1 can (6 ounces) no-salt-added tomato paste
- 1 tsp minced garlic
- 1 tsp sugar
- 1 tsp dried Italian seasoning
- ¼ cup grated Parmesan cheese
Procedure[edit | edit source]
- Prepare pasta according to package directions.
- Meanwhile, heat oil in a 4½-quart saucepan or Dutch oven over medium-high heat.
- Peel and finely chop onion, adding to pan as you chop.
- Remove casings from sausage, if necessary, and crumble sausage into the pan. Stir and cook, breaking up the sausage, until the sausage is cooked through and the onion is tender, about 5 minutes.
- Add wine to pan and stir to loosen any brown bits on the bottom of the pan.
- Add canned tomatoes and their juice, tomato paste, garlic, sugar and Italian seasoning.
- Stir to combine, then reduce heat to medium-low.
- Stir in Parmesan cheese, and cook until pasta is ready.
- Serve the sauce with the cooked pasta.
Notes, tips, and variations[edit | edit source]
- May substitute ½ cup chopped onion for small onion.
- Sauce can simmer on low, after cheese is added, up to 30 minutes, if necessary.
