Quick and easy. I like it without the Parmesan but my husband is a cheese freak, so the more Parmesan and mozzarella, the better.

Very rarely does my husband rate anything 5 stars, but this one he did enthusiastically. I used a quality sausage, Johnsonville, and fresh plum tomatoes from the garden instead of the canned diced tomato. I omitted the green pepper because we don’t care for it but added a finely chopped large garlic clove. Also, I chopped and sprinkled some assorted cheeses I had that needed to be used over the top. The results were delicious. This is very easy and tasty, and will be in my dinner rotation. Read More

Only 3 stars because I made several changes detailed later in the review. The changes for me bring this up to 5 stars. The sauce in this recipe simply is not a "Sauce" at all in my opinion as-is. However it is a GREAT starter/base. I get that this is called ground sausage spaghetti and maybe I'm missing the point. But I'll stick with a little more liquid in the sauce for a meal called Spaghetti. That said I made this using Johnsonville mild Italian sausage and the flavor was really great. Kids loved it too. I like another commentor thought it needed much more sauce so I added a jar that I had on hand... 24oz Zia Marinara I believe but anything would work really. I also sauteed the onions and bell peppers in olive oil first until soft as well as 2 cloves of chopped fresh garlic. Then I removed the vegetables from the skillet and browned the sausage. I didn't bother to drain the sausage grease since there was basically none to drain. I added all the ingredients back into the skillet with the meat including the extra jar of sauce and allowed it to simmer on low heat for about an hour. The finished product was really really quite tasty. Thick and flavorful. Served on slightly al dente spaghetti noodles this meal was delicious and this was a sauce that will probably become a regular for me. Read More

I thought it was easy and delicious. I omitted the margarine and added fresh garlic with the pepper and onion. Even my three-year-old finished all of his! Read More
