Welcome to Simple Fare, Fairly Simple. This is a place for me to post recipes of all kinds...along with other miscellaneous fodder from my so-called life here in the south. Who knows what you will find here. Could be anything from my husband...known as IT Guy...to my kids and beautiful grandbabies that are growing up way too fast right before my eyes. But...mostly this will be a place for food. I hope you'll see something you like and if you decide to try something from the list...leave me a comment and let me know!

You know...I don't think I've ever made spaghetti with straight sausage. I usually make it with ground beef or maybe with a little sausage mixed in...but never with JUST sausage. Oh my! What a treat!! IT Guy and I loved this so much! In fact, he even said it's the best spaghetti he's ever had! Wow...what a compliment!! I threw some crushed canned tomatoes in with some seasonings as the sauce so it was a simple dish...but oh so good! 
You've GOT to make this!

Italian Sausage Spaghetti 

1 pound Italian sweet sausage
2 teaspoons Italian seasoning
1 small onion, chopped
2 cloves of garlic
1 28-ounce can of crushed tomatoes
Olive oil
Salt & pepper
Grated Parmesan cheese
1 pound spaghetti ~ cooked al dente

 Brown the meat with the Italian seasoning, salt and pepper in a large skillet with a little olive oil.

Remove meat from the skillet. Add a little more olive oil then sauté the onions and garlic until the onions are translucent. Add the meat back into the skillet and stir.

Add the crushed tomatoes to the meat/onion mixture and allow to simmer, covered, for about 30 minutes.

Serve sauce over cooked pasta. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.

Serves 4-6.

Here's the line-up.

If you're using sausage in the casings, 
just split it down the middle...

...then peel off the casings. 
Easy. And gross. Sorry.

Brown the meat with the seasonings 
then remove it from the pan.

Add the onion and garlic to the 
pan and cook until tender.

Then add the meat back into the pan.

Add the sauce.

Cover and let it hang out and 
simmer for about 30 minutes.

Serve over pasta with some fresh grated parm!!!
