Spaghetti with Melted Garlic Mozzarella

Like most of you know, I love cheese.  So, why not top it with ooey gooey garlicky cheese?   Spaghetti is an all time classic dish that doesn't really need enhancements.  Well, this idea popped in my head and I had to give it a whirl.  I am in LOVE.  The extra step is so worth the time and don't think I will ever be able to go back to the original.  Initially the plan was to place it under the broiler until it was nice and bubbly however, the dish said, not broiler safe!

Ingredients for spaghetti:
  • 1 lb Italian sausage
  • 1/2 box thin spaghetti
  • 1 jar favorite marinara
  • 1 can diced tomatoes
  • 1/4 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

Ingredients for Garlic Mozzarella:
  • 1 cup mozzarella, shredded
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 2 cloves garlic, grated
  • 1/2 tablespoon butter
  • 1/2 tablespoon flour

Directions:  Boil noodles according to package directions.  Rinse, drain and return to pot coating with olive oil.  Meanwhile, brown sausage in a large skillet and add all remaining ingredients.  Simmer for around 10 minutes and add to noodles, coating evenly.  In a small saucepan melt butter and stir in flour, forming a roux.  Slowly stir in milk and garlic.  Remove from heat, stir in cheese, pour over spaghetti and serve!
