Ingredients

Units Scale
  • 8 ounces spaghetti
  • 4 hot Italian sausages
  • 1 tablespoon garlic-infused oil
  • 2 green onions
  • 1/2 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 2 tablespoons white wine
  • 1 can pasata or tomato sauce
  • 1 bay leaf
  • Salt and pepper, to taste

Instructions

  1. Put a large pot of water on to boil. When the water is bubbling away, add a fat pinch of salt and cook your spaghetti according to the package instructions, stirring occasionally to prevent sticking. Drain your pasta when it's cooked through.
  2. While your pasta is cooking, use a small sharp knife to cut through the casing on your sausages and gently pull the casing off and discard. Break up each sausage into about five pieces and roll them into meatballs.
  3. Heat your olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. When the oil is hot, add the sausage meatballs and brown them on all sides.
  4. Use scissors to snip your green onions into thin slices. You can do this right over the pan. Add the Italian seasoning and give a quick stir.
  5. Add in the wine and pasata or tomato sauce and bay leaf. Allow everything to simmer for about 20 minutes. The sauce will thicken a bit as it simmers.
  6. Remove your pan from the heat and fish out the bay leaf. You can toss your pasta and sauce together in the pan, or spoon the sauce over your pasta on the plate.
