pasta dry spaghetti

Spaghetti the Moreo Way

Moreo Spaghetti quickly made with canned sauce and Johnsonville Italian Sweet Sausage Mild.

Mike loves this recipe and asks for it weekly.

In the summertime, I use fresh herbs from my herb garden. Seasoned with parsley, thyme, rosemary, oregano, chives, and cilantro. Otherwise, I use 2 teaspoons of a dried Italian Seasoning mix.

Glazed onions are in the freezer section at my local Walmart.

The merlot for deglazing and Worcestershire Sauce are optional, but I think they add flavor to the sauce. I also add sugar to the canned sauce to reduce the tartness.

Spaghetti is a long, thin, solid, cylindrical pasta. It is a staple food of traditional Italian cuisine. Like other pasta, spaghetti is made of milled wheat and water and sometimes enriched with vitamins and minerals. Italian spaghetti is typically made from durum wheat semolina.

The Ingredients

  • 1 lb ground Johnsonville Sweet Italian Sausage
  • 4 tablespoons merlot
  • 2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 cube of caramelized onions
  • 1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon Salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 cans Hunt’s Pasta Sauce
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon fresh Oregano

Pasta Cooking Tips

  • Add plenty of salt to the pasta water.
  • Cook the pasta “al-dente,” which means the pasta will be tender, but not mushy. It will still have a bit of a bite, which is perfect.
  • After the pasta has cooked, add a large spoonful of the pasta water to the sauce.
