Ingredients

  • 1/2 pound Italian Sausage
  • 4 (6.5oz) cans Organicville Original Organic BBQ Sauce or Organicville Tangy Organic BBQ Sauce
  • 1 (14.5oz) can Organic Diced Tomatoes
  • 2 pieces Bay Leaves
  • 1 teaspoon Italian Seasoning
  • 4 large Cloves of Garlic
  • 1 teaspoon Dried Basil or 1 handful of fresh ones, chopped
  • 1 (8oz) package Spaghetti or use homemade pasta
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Slivers of Parmesan Cheese

Directions


  1. Heat up a large skillet over medium flame and start to brown the sausage meat. Once the meat is completely cooked, remove from the pan and drain the excess oil.
  2. In thick, large saucepan, combine the rest of the ingredients including the cooked sausage, except for the fresh basil, parmesan cheese and spaghetti. Now, if you are using dried basil, you can add this to the pot. Mix well and bring to a slow but steady simmer. Stir occasionally to keep the ingredients from sticking at the bottom of the pan.
  3. Meanwhile, boil some water and cook the spaghetti (al dente) according to package directions. Strain and set aside. You can also transfer them in your serving platter if you are serving this family style. Portion the noodles and place them on individual plates if you want to serve restaurant style.
  4. As soon as the sauce is completely cooked add the basil leaves (if using fresh), adjust the seasoning and pour on top of the plated noodles. Top with slivers of parmesan cheese and serve!

Notes:

  • You can replace the Italian sausage with vegan sausages for a vegan or vegetarian version.
  • I sometimes add a little pinch of cayenne or red pepper flakes to give this dish a little kick.

Making pasta dishes helped me appreciate the art of cooking even more. You can make it as meaty as you want or as clean and meat-free as you want and you will still get that same warmth and comforting feel that only a hearty bowl or healthy pasta can give.
