Spicy Spaghetti

 

This recipe is a weekly favorite at my house.  I will do my best to show you how to make this a couple different ways (meat and vegetarian… and not spicy).

  • If you want it to be spicy and for meat eaters, start with with 1 lb of hot Italian sausage.
  • If you want it to be for meat eaters but not spicy, start with 1 lb of ground beef, pork or turkey.
  • If you want it to be vegetarian or vegan start with a vegetable protein option: Bob’s Red Mill TVP, Morning Star Griller Crumbles, Boca Veggie Crumbles or Loma Linda Worthington Burger
  • To make this gluten free, substitute the pasta for gluten free pasta.

All of the fresh vegetables cooking with the Italian sausage. Some weeks we do broccoli and peppers. Other weeks we do peppers and mushrooms. It ends up smelling amazing as it cooks.

Here is a close up of everything cooked up ready to eat. The noodles pictured are gluten free. They don’t take much different than regular flour noodles…. my opinion. Each of us put as much topping as we want on our noodles. Some nights its a lot of Italian sausage and other nights it a lot of sauce.
