This is my very own classic frugal spaghetti recipe. I cook this one pretty often, ever since I was a college student as it’s simple to make and designed to feed many hungry mouth. This recipe is recommended for college brats who are on budget, and have no time to luxuriate in cooking complicated gourmet.
Cook them at your own risk, however. The author is not responsible for your food poisoning and whatnot.
1 can of button mushroom
4 pieces of hot dogs/sausages
1 can of stewed tomatoes/canned tomatoes
4 cups of tomato sauce
1/2 cup of water
2 tablespoon of sugar (optional)
1 pack of spaghetti/linguine pasta
Firstly, slice the sausages and button mushrooms.
SautÃ© the button mushrooms and the sausages together. You may add some freshly chopped onions if you prefer, but I’ve omitted it as I can’t be bothered with it. What’s more, I’ll be using canned stewed tomatoes. The stewed tomatoes already contained chopped onions, celeries, and whatnot.
Open up the canned tomatoes/ stewed tomatoes, and dump it into the pot. Stir gently and pour in 1/2 cup of water, and cook it til the tomatoes are mushy and tender. Add in some sugar if you prefer, and pour in 4 cups of tomato sauce. Stir til it’s simmering and nicely done.
While waiting for the pasta sauce to be done, boil the pasta til al dante.
When the pasta and the sauce is ready, put them onto a plate, and serve while it’s piping hot.
