New Recipe Review- Spaghetti with Sausage and Tomato Sauce

For my new recipe this week, I tried "Spaghetti with Sausage and Simple Tomato Sauce" from It was delicious, and oh so easy!

Here is the original recipe:


  • 8 ounces hot Italian turkey sausage links
  • 8 ounces uncooked spaghetti
  • 1 (28-ounce) can no-salt-added whole tomatoes, undrained
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper
  • 5 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 cup torn fresh basil
  • 1/2 cup (2 ounces) shaved Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese


1. Preheat broiler.
2. Arrange sausage on a small baking sheet. Broil sausage 5 minutes on each side or until done. Remove pan from oven (do not turn broiler off). Cut sausage into 1/4-inch-thick slices. Arrange slices in a single layer on baking sheet. Broil sausage slices 2 minutes or until browned.
3. Cook pasta according to package directions, omitting salt and fat; drain.
4. Place tomatoes in a food processor; process until almost smooth. Heat olive oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add crushed red pepper and minced garlic; sauté 1 minute. Stir in tomatoes, sugar, and salt; cook 4 minutes or until slightly thick. Add sausage and cooked pasta to pan; toss well. Top with fresh basil and Parmigiano-Reggiano.

I did make a few changes. We actually don't have a broiler pan, so I browned the sausages in the wok (I LOVE using that thing!) and added the garlic olive oil, and tomatoes to that when the sausages were ready. Easy! I also used a can organic fire roasted tomatoes (not low salt), which gave it a great flavor. This was really yummy, and I'll definitely be making it again!
