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.
