Instructions Checklist
  • Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook and stir sausage, mushrooms, onion, green bell pepper, and garlic in the hot oil until sausage is browned and crumbly, about 20 minutes; drain and discard grease.

  • Stir tomato sauce, diced tomatoes, tomato paste, and olives into sausage mixture; season with oregano, basil, and salt. Simmer mixture until flavors infuse, about 30 minutes.

  • Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook spaghetti in the boiling water, stirring occasionally until cooked through but firm to the bite, about 12 minutes. Drain and transfer to a serving bowl; top with tomato-sausage sauce and Parmesan cheese.

Easy recipe to make for a large group of hungry people. I substituted mushrooms for quartered artichoke hearts and browned the sausage separately as the first step, then sauteed the onion, garlic and peppers in a small bit of the reserved fat from the sausage. From there it was just a matter of adding everything else and letting it simmer. A new favorite for our house. Read More

I didn't have any cans of tomato sauce or tomato paste but I did have diced tomatos and spaghetti sauce. Didn't have any mushrooms or cheese but this turned out pretty great. I'd give it a five if I liked spaghetti more but I don't its just what I had to make. Read More

I added about two teaspoons of sugar because it was a bit too tangy for my taste. My son liked it fine before the added sugar. The best part about this recipe was that it was a little different from our usual spaghetti. Read More

My husband loved it! I read the other reviews before making it. I didn't add olives. I chopped up a tomato and added it. I followed the recipe more of less and it was delicious. I have leftovers.. can't wait because I know it will taste even better the next day!! Read More

Very nice traditional spaghetti recipe. Next time I'm not gonna add salt cause it's already salty enough. Read More
