Killer Spaghetti

Submitted by: KAY08439

Introduction

This spaghetti is to die for. I made it once for a date night in. My boyfriend raved about it and asked me to make it for his friends. He said he has not had spaghetti like this before. I made it for his friends who introduced their selves as: "So you're the one who makes killer spaghetti?" This is how it got it's name and has stuck as a raved recipe over the last decade.

Your family will love my Italian version of Spaghetti. It's fully of flavor and the nice part about it is you can make it more saucy or more meaty. Whichever to your liking. If you don't want it too meaty, add more sauce. If you want it more meaty add less sauce.

    I would not add olive oil or any kind of oil to the pasta. From what I've read about making spaghetti, the sauce will not cling to the noodles if there is oil on them. You should not rinse the noodles with water after cooking either - 4/27/10

    Yes you're right I don't rinse with water. The little amount of oil was just to keep the pasta from sticking, but you can omit the olive oil.

  • The best way to keep pasta from sticking is to bring it back to the boil as rapidly as possible and stir it. Oil doesn't really help. It kind of floats there. I have made something similar with Italian turkey sausage. If you can find it, Newman's Own Sock-o-rooni Pasta sauce cuts the work in half. - 4/29/10

  • I'm not a real pasta fan but think, with some healthier substitutions for pasta and sausage, it totally satisfied the man in my life - 4/29/10
