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.
