Spaghetti with Meat Sauce and Italian Sausages

Spaghetti with Meat Sauce and Italian Sausages



I would like to dedicate this post to a close family friend, Hospital Corpsman 3rd Class Joshua Bisnar, who is being deployed to Afghanistan later this month.

Josh has been in the Navy for two years and is currently stationed at Camp Pendleton in southern California where he has been trained as a corpsman. He recently received the very distinguished award for Bluejacket of the Year after going through a series of interviews, inspections, and eliminations. That award is given annually to a member of the Navy who exhibits expertise in the areas of job knowledge, Navy knowledge, current events, and history—as judged by his superiors. When he finishes his stint in the Navy, Josh plans to become a doctor. I want him to know that we wish him well, that we think he is one fine young man, and that we are so proud of all that he has accomplished. Josh, I feel a personal indebtedness to you and to all members of the U.S. Armed Forces for your service in protecting our great country. You rock, buddy!

Okay, are you ready to cook?  Who can resist homemade spaghetti with meat sauce AND Italian sausages!  Not me! In addition to the Italian sausages, you’ll also need ground beef, stewed tomatoes, tomato sauce, tomato paste, a large onion, mushrooms, spaghetti, and some spices.
Spaghetti with Meat Sauce and Italian Sausages
One of the things I like about this recipe is that the ground beef cooks in the sauce as opposed to browning it before the sauce ingredients are added.  It keeps the beef nice and soft.  If you haven’t tried it this way, I think you will like it, but be sure you use lean beef.

If there are any leftovers, I usually slice up the remaining sausages and add them to the sauce. It makes for a great second meal.  Serving Suggestion:  Serve with Roasted Garlic Bread or Easy Garlic Bread.

  1. I followed this spaghetti recipe exactly, and it was delicious. I just wonder how much time I would have saved total if I had done it this way when I started cooking 35 years ago! This one is a keeper for me. Thank you, Laura!

  2. Randy, I’m so glad to hear you liked the spaghetti and that it saved you some time, too! I always appreciate your comments!
