Me, what I love when I am tired is good food that can be made pretty fast. Yaani when I get into the kitchen I am out in 15 minutes or less. Then I can go lie on the sofa, under a blanket, and eat as I watch Tv. Isn’t that just heaven after a long day?

Well this is one of those dishes. Cook the spaghetti in 10 minutes, prep the sausages and cook in 15 minutes. All done in a total of 15 minutes. I like to use spicy pork sausages coz I feel like they give the dish the kick it deserves. but you can use any sausages you have at hand. This is a great dish to feed your kids for lunch on a day they are hungry but you can’t be bothered to labor in the kitchen. My Mr enjoys this too on lazy Sunday afternoons. I hope your family will love it too.

Happy Cooking!!
