Minute-Meatballs and Spaghetti

Author: Canadian Living

Slicing sausage into pieces gives the illusion of meatballs when cooked. Because the sausage and stewed tomatoes are already seasoned, you really don't have to add any more flavour.

  • Portion size 4 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 lb mild Italian sausage
  • 1 can Italian stewed tomatoes
  • 1/4 cup tomato paste
  • 1 cup chopped fresh parsley
  • 12 oz spaghetti
  • 1 cup grated Parmesan cheese

Method

Cut sausages into 1/2-inch (1 cm) thick slices. In skillet, cook sausages over medium-high heat, turning once, for 5 minutes or until browned. Drain off any fat.

In food processor or blender, puree tomatoes; pour into skillet. Add tomato paste; bring to boil. Reduce heat to medium; simmer for 7 to 10 minutes or until thickened. Stir in parsley.

Meanwhile, in large pot of boiling salted water, cook spaghetti for about 8 minutes or until tender but firm. Drain and return to pot. Add sauce; toss to coat. Serve sprinkled with Parmesan cheese.
