Spaghetti with Spicy Italian Sausage with Mushrooms


  • 2 Italian spicy sausages (peeled from the casing)
  • 1 Package of white button mushrooms (sliced)
  • Tomato Sauce
  • Whole wheat spaghetti

Directions:Boil some water in a pot. Once the water has come to a boil, add about 2 tablespoons of salt. You should do this in order to flavor the pasta. Cook the spaghetti until it is al dente. Drain the pasta and set it aside.

Take one package of white button mushrooms and slice into 1 inch thickness. If you like your mushrooms smaller, you may cut them to 1/2 inch in thickness. Take 2 spicy Italian sausages and run your knife down the middle, piercing the casing. Remove the sausages from the casing.

In a pan, add 1 tablespoon of olive oil and heat for a few minutes. To help break up the sausage, you can simply crumble the sausage with your fingers into the pan. Once the sausage starts to turn brown, add the mushrooms. Stir fry them for about 3-4 minutes. Add the desired amount of sauce. It really depends on you, whether you like a more saucy spaghetti, or a dryer one. Once the sauce comes to a simmer, add the spaghetti and toss. You can sprinkle some red pepper flakes for a slightly more spicier spaghetti and some Parmesan cheese over the top. Plate and serve!

I ate this spaghetti along with some Parmesan cheese rolls, which I purchased from Trader Joes. very good! I would definitely get these again. I think they were only $2-3. I love shopping at Trader Joes for my ingredients, because a lot of the food there is more organic and fairly priced. Organic food doesn’t necessarily have to be expensive, although I understand how most people would stay away from organic foods to save money.

This was a really great dish, and I was able to eat it for lunch and dinner the next day! Try this recipe out.


p.s so I know that f00dcoma has been blogging more on reviews than recipes as of late. This past year has been rather busy and it’s become increasingly more difficult to blog daily on new recipes. The biggest reason for not keeping up with new recipes, is because I have often been making the same foods that have already been blogged about here, and for the sake of saving the readers from repetition, I have just been not blogging those dishes altogether. However, with this new year, and a new quarter in school I am trying to make an effort to save money, by cooking more and eating out less. Let’s see how this goes, and hopefully along the way I can try out some new recipes.

Please let us know if there are any dishes you would like us to attempt. What recipes or restaurant reviews would you like to see here on f00dcoma?
