  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.

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 ...

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...
