You want a big bowl of something comforting, but it’s too much to handle on a Tuesday with homework waiting and the kids howling for their dinner. Definitely time to whip out your lazy day repertoire.
2 tablespoons Olive Oil
1 package Sweet Italian Sausage (I like Johnsonville)
1 32 oz. can of Crushed Tomatoes
1 1/2 cup of Water
1 tablespoon of Italian Seasoning
Salt & Pepper
1 package Dried Spaghetti
With a knife slit the sausage casing open and remove the sausage. Discard the casing.
Roll the sausage into small balls (about the size of a cherry tomato).
Heat a large sauce pan over medium high heat and add the olive oil. Place the meatballs into the pan and brown for about 10 minutes.
Add the crushed tomatoes and water to the pan and stir gently. Add the Italian seasoning and salt and pepper.
Turn the heat to a simmer and allow to cook uncovered for 15-20 minutes.
Cook the pasta in a big pot of salted boiling water for about 12 minutes. Drain and serve in bowls with the meatballs and sauce spooned over the top.
