Spaghetti in Sausage Sauce

This is a quick dinner that I whipped up this past Sunday. It’s pretty simple.



For the sauce

1 medium onion chopped

3 cloves of garlic finely chopped

1 teaspoon of chopped ginger

1 teaspoon of turmeric powder

3 tomatoes diced

1/8 teaspoon black pepper

Salt to taste

5 beef sausages sliced into 2 cm rings

250ml water

A handful of coriander/dhania finely chopped

1 tablespoon of vegetable oil

In a big sufuria boil water and add salt. After the water boils add the spaghetti and cook till al dente.


As the spaghetti is cooking, In a saucepan heat the vegetable oil then cook the onions,garlic and ginger. Season with salt.


After the onions are translucent add the tomatoes.



Cover and let the tomatoes cook down.

Once cooked, add the water, turmeric powder and black pepper.


Add the sausage slices.

beef sausage
beef sausage

Cover and let it come to a gentle boil. This will ensure that the sausages cook.

Remember the boiling spaghetti, drain the water and set aside.


Once the sauce has simmered, stir in the coriander. Turn off the heat.


Finally pour the sauce over the spaghetti and mix it in.


Serve and enjoy.


Very delicious.

    instead of sausage what else can i use?

    • Hi Judy? You can use just about any accompaniment of your choice. If you are fan of mushrooms you can use those. Veggies like peas can add a nice twist. A sauce of boneless chicken breasts can also do. Generally anything that work as a great sauce.
