Spicy Sausage with Pasta
|Hot pork sausage||12 Ounce, crumbled (1 Package)|
|Chopped green pepper||1 Cup (16 tbs)|
|Finely chopped onion||1 Cup (16 tbs)|
|Garlic||1 Clove (5 gm), minced|
|Spaghetti sauce||28 Ounce (1 Jar)|
1. In a saucepan, combine crumbled sausage, onion, green pepper and garlic; cook over medium heat until sausage is browned; drain off fat.
2. Add the spaghetti sauce; bring to a simmer and cook for about 10 minutes to blend flavors and mix well.
3. Cook spaghetti according to package directions; drain.
4. In a large serving platter, arrange the spaghetti and serve the mixture over the spaghetti.
To cook pasta properly, use plenty of water. A too-small pot and too little water encourage the pasta to clump and stick together, thus cooking unevenly. Using plenty of water helps to prevent pasta from sticking together by quickly washing away the exuded starch.
