Mozzarella and Roasted Garlic Sausage Spaghetti

We’re back to the Sam’s gourmet chicken sausages tonight.  I was in the mood for spaghetti since it’s cold, but I didn’t want to actually thaw out any beef, so sausage it was.  The results were quite tasty, though I think I’d prefer a different pasta than spaghetti because I had a hard time getting pasta in every bite because it kept slithering off the fork.  This makes 3 servings at 504 calories and 10.2 grams of fat.   So I offer it up for this week’s Presto Pasta Night, hosted by Kevin of Closet Cooking.

Ingredients:

  • 1 jar/can your favorite spaghetti sauce
  • 1 cup rough chopped mushrooms
  • 1 pound mozzarella and roasted garlic sausages, diced
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 6 oz. dried whole wheat spaghetti

Directions:

  1. Add the spaghetti sauce, mushrooms, sausage, basil, and garlic and mix well.
  2. Simmer on low for at least thirty minutes.
  3. Prepare your pasta water (salt and bring to a boil).
  4. Add pasta and cook until al dente.
  5. Drain pasta and plate up with sauce.
  6. Serve with garlic bread.

  1. This looks absoultely delicious. I have never just used sausage with spaghetti, but would think that the unique flavor of the sausage really shines through. Great recipe to try. Thanks

  2. What a fabulous recipe, and so easy too. I love the idea of keeping a supply of roast garlic on hand – will be putting some in my oven today. Thanks for the inspiration.
