  • spaghetti enough for 4 adults
  • 6 breakfast sausages chopped into 1/2 inch pieces
  • 2 medium onions thinly sliced
  • 4 large cloves garlic thinly sliced
  • 1 large tomato diced
  • handful baby carrots chopped
  • 1/2 green pepper sliced
  • 10 or so white mushrooms chopped
  • handful fresh basil leaves whole
  • handful fresh oregano leaves whole
  • several cranks of the pepper grinder
  • 1/4 cup white wine to deglaze pan - you can do this with water or broth
  • 3 to 4 cups chicken broth to cover all ingredients in pan
  • fresh parmesan cheese to garnish, grated
  1. Cook sausage in a large pot or pan, stirring frequently until cooked through.
  2. Add onions and cook for a few minutes until soft.
  3. Deglaze pan with wine. To do this, just pour 1/4 cup wine (or water or broth if you prefer) into the pan, and scrape up all that yummy, brown goodness that's stuck to the bottom of your pan. This is going to give your dish lots of flavour.
  4. Add spaghetti and all remaining vegetables and herbs/spices to the pan.
  5. Pour chicken broth in, and crank up the heat.
  6. Use a set of kitchen tongs to keep things moving in the pan until the broth comes to a boil.
  7. Reduce heat to medium, and continue to cook until liquid has been absorbed and pasta is fully cooked
