Two Way Sausage Spaghetti

This was so easy and a huge hit with my husband and father in law.  Definitely a new one for my rotation.  If you are looking to cut some calories and fat use spaghetti squash and chicken/turkey Italian sausage.

  • 1/2 package spaghetti noodles  (I always use angel hair)
  • 1 jar marinara 
  • 1 small onion, diced
  • 1 lb ground Italian sausage
  • 1 package Italian sausage links
  • 1 small can of mushrooms
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

Directions: In a large skillet brown ground sausage with onion, add to food processor and mince.  Add marinara, minced meat, mushrooms, and garlic powder and simmer.  Add links to skillet and saute with olive oil until browned on each side.  Add water to skillet and turn heat on low and simmer with lid for about 20 minutes.  Boil noodles according to package.  Before draining noodles keep 1 cup water to add to sauce if needed.  Return noodles to pot and add sauce and pasta water if needed. (I used about 1/2 a cup)  Finally, add sausage links and serve.
