Thanks World,

Today March 23rd, I posted my 400th CookTeaser blog. And to think, it all began late in the month of May 2011, not 10 months ago.

I’ve had 8,558 visits, to date.  I’ll keep blogging if you keep watching

A CookTale

It takes a simple combination of Spaghetti, a good Tomato Sauce and a couple of Sweet and Hot Italian Sausages to make a zesty delicious dinner. And if you are not in the mood to get any more involved, it’s easy to prepare. 


4 oz of Spaghetti
4 Italian Sausages (two sweet & two hot)
1/2 cup of red wine 
8 oz of Marinara Sauce (homemade or Rao’s)
7 oz of canned diced Tomatoes (optional)
1/4 cup of Pecorino Romano (at plating)


1. Heat the oven to 425 degrees. Bring a large pot of water to a boil.

2. Cook the Spaghetti according to the package directions. Drain & add to a deep saucepan. 

3. Add the Marinara Sauce & diced Tomatoes for additional crunch & toss together. Set aside in the saucepan while you prepare the Sausages.

4. In a frying pan add the Sausages & the 1/2 cup of Red Wine. Fry, turning for even cooking, until the Wine begins to evaporate. Don’t overcook. They will continue cooking in the oven.

5. In a casserole dish large enough to accommodate the Spaghetti, add it & top with the Sausages. Place in the oven for 15 to 20 minutes. You want the Spaghetti to begin to take on color.

6. Time for plating & sprinkling with Pecorino.
