Ghetto Spaghetti

This post is old, so what you see here may not reflect my current opinion and mindset, certain information may be outdated, and links may be broken.

I just made some spaghetti for my family tonight, and I decided to share the “recipe” in a strange but funny way. Without further ado, here’s the recipe.

* Baking pan
* Big pot
* Spatula
* Big and deep frying pan
* Knife
* Strainer

1 package of wheat spaghetti noodles
1 package of Italian sausage thawed
1 package of Pepperidge Garlic Bread
1 and a half bottle of whatever spaghetti sauce to your liking
1 bottle of Parmesan cheese

1. Bring a huge pot of water to boil. Add some oil (olive oil preferably) to the pot.

2. Grab the nearest knife (don’t stab anyone in the process) and slice down the skin on the Italian sausages. Then get the meat out of the skin and into the frying pan. Start frying them while breaking up the huge chunks into little pieces with a spatula.

3. Open up the garlic bread and put it on the baking pan. Ignore the complicated cooking instructions on the package. Use the old method that used to be on the package: Heat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and just bake it for 25 minutes.

4. When the sausages are all cooked, grab a million paper towels and soak up the grease. Okay, maybe not a million, but at least a few depending on the size of the towels.

5. By then the water should be boiling. Dump the noodles into the pot and add salt as a recommendation. Have fun getting them in there.

6. Wait forever for the noodles to cook. The package usually says boil for 9 to 11 minutes. Ignore that stupid advice and be prepared to wait forever. Make sure you get the bread out and let it cool.

7. By the time the noodles halfway there, open up the jar of spaghetti sauce and dump it into the somewhat less greasy sausages. Put the heat low and let it simmer.

8. When the noodles are done cooking (test it by eating some) dump the pasta into a strainer. Get the excess water out.

9. Turn off the sauce. Slice the bread. And start serving the amount you want with Parmesan cheese on top.

Enjoy XD.

Like I said, it’s a ghetto spaghetti! But it was delicious. Mwahahahaha. Oddly enough I hate the noodle portion… I never did like waiting forever for the big pot of water to boil and then waiting for the pasta to be cooked. I wished we had salad to go with this meal, but alas I didn’t think of getting pre-prepared salad yesterday at the Commissary. Oh well.

I almost did not have the sausages, though. My mum saw them in the refrigerator, almost decided to make breakfast with it, but decided against it. Dude. Nobody touches my sausages and get away with it. XD But… AH. Yummay!!!

    Spaghetti is about the only thing I can cook. Thanks for the recipe! I must save it somewhere to try later.

    Sausage? I haven’t eaten spaghetti with sausage, but I have with grounded meat mixed in with the sauce.

    I hate waiting for the noodle parts to cook, but eating is always good :) So, it’s worth the wait, I say to myself while cooking.
