Description

Um, yes please?

Seriously! Fresh from the garden basil, creamy tomato sauce and butter sauteed mushrooms and kielbasa … mmm!

Ingredients

  • 4 Tablespoons Butter
  • ½ whole Onion, finely chopped
  • 16 ounces, weight Sliced Mushrooms
  • 5 cloves Garlic, Pressed
  • 14 ounces, weight Kielbasa Sausage, Thinly Sliced
  • 1 cup Green Onions, Optional
  • 2 teaspoons Salt
  • Cracked Pepper To Taste
  • 1 Tablespoon Italian Seasoning
  • 24 ounces, weight Classico Spicy Tomato Basil Spaghetti Sauce (no Worries, Not Spicy!)
  • 2 cans (15 Oz. Size) Tomato Sauce
  • 12 whole Fresh Basil Leaves
  • 1 sprig Rosemary, Snipped
  • ½ cups Cold Water
  • 4 Tablespoons Cornstarch
  • 1 pound Whole Wheat Linguini Pasta Noodles
  • 1 pint Heavy Cream

Preparation

In a large pot, melt butter. Add white onion, mushrooms and pressed garlic. Add in the sliced sausage and cook until browned. Stir in green onions, if using (I have excess in my garden right now, so I put green onions in everything!). Stir in salt, seasonings and sauces. Slice basil in thin strips and stir in with the rosemary. Cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally.

Blend cold water and corn starch, then slowly stir into tomato sauce. Continue to stir as it heats and thickens (about 20 minutes).

Cook pasta, rinse and drain while you wait.

Whisk the heavy cream into the sauce and turn burner to medium-low heat. Simmer for 10 minutes.

Ladle sauce over noodles when ready to serve. Dig in. This is truly a delicious meal, worthy of company even!

Made this last week. Excellent. A tad spicy, but not too much. Also had leftovers with penne pasta.

We’ll be making this this week! Now your list of ingredients asks for basil but your instructions say “bay leaves”. You did mean basil there right? Bay would change the flavor considerably. Might still be good but not chopped up I’d guess.

Totally delicious. I made zucchini noodles for my hubby and myself, kids had pasta. I questioned using kielbasa in a pasta sauce but it was amazing! Thanks for sharing!!

This was very flavorful and yummy!! I used two cans of diced tomatoes instead of the Classico sauce. Thank you for sharing.

Delicious! Even my pickies loved it. I love the extra sauce! The rosemary was a little weird for me, so I would probably leave it out next time.

Fantastic and easy! It made A LOT of sauce. I portioned the left overs and froze them. I also added a little red pepper because I love spicy red sauce. This has a sweet and smoky flavor to it. It turned out to be one of the best sauces I have made. That is really saying something since I usually refuse to use jarred spaghetti sauce. The whole family said it better than restaurant quality. Thanks for sharing!
