Super Spaghetti Sauce Recipe

At my house, we never know how many we'll have for dinner. That's why this spaghetti sauce is one of my favorites - flavorful, filling and fast. Smoked kielbasa gives it depth, and salsa adds the kick. —Bella Anderson, Chester, South Carolina

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 17, 2013

Can't wait to try it! Sounds like an easy arrabiata sauce with lots of flavor. Although I love to cook from scratch, I'm all for the KISS formula now and then, especially when in a pinch. Thanks idontcarewhatmyscreennameis for suggesting the Sweet Italian Turkey Sausage. Gonna try it!

MY REVIEW

 This is a super recipe because it follows the KISS (Keep It Simple, Stupid) formula of which I subscribe to. It is quick and easy to prepare with items already in my pantry. I don't have to stand over a hot stove conjuring up a complicated sauce recipe! Jar sauces are excellent and have a variety of ingredients besides mushrooms. And like many recipes, this can be modified to suit dietary requirements, tastes, etc. For example, I substitute Sweet Italian Turkey Sausage for the Kielbasa. Thank you Bella Anderson for a Super Spaghetti Sauce Recipe.

I thought this was great. my kids thought it was too much on the spicy side with the salsa, but I liked it. Maybe I'll just use a bit less next time.
