Spaghetti with Spicy Bell Pepper Sauce

This is a really simple recipe that you can make in 30 minutes at home. I made this last night for dinner with ingredients I had at home, and I thought it was good enough to share with everyone. The recipe serves two people.

Spaghetti with Spicy Bell Pepper Sauce
  • 2 Italian sausages- mild or hot
  • 2 servings of spaghetti
  • 1 package of frozen three pepper and onion blend
  • 2 tbsps of tomato paste
  • 2 tsp of garlic powder
  • 1 tsp of red chili flakes
  • 2 tsps of Italian seasoning
  • 1 tbsp to spaghetti water and salt to taste to sauce

First cook two servings of spaghetti in a large pot of water with 1 tbsp of salt. Once done, set to the side and keep the water. Slice up sausages. Cook the sausages in a large pan on the stove for two minutes with a little olive oil on a medium heat to brown the sausage.

Serve warm and sprinkle fresh Parmesan cheese over the pasta. This is a perfect dish to make after a long day when you want something comforting to eat. Enjoy! :0)
