How to Make Sausage Spaghetti Pasta with a Creamy Tomato Sauce

  1. In a large skillet or saucepan crumble and cook sausage. Drain on paper towels, if desired. (I usually do not)
  2. Next add green chiles, both jars of pasta sauce and one cup heavy cream.  Let simmer for about 20 to 30 minutes.  If you are in a real pinch for time you don’t have to do this, but letting it simmer a bit adds to the flavor.
  3. Meanwhile, cook spaghetti noodles according to package instructions to al dente. Once done, drain water off noodles in a colander. (To keep this one pot – make noodles first in the pot you cook the other items in.)
  4. Pour cooked spaghetti noodles into sauce and mix until combined.
  5. Top with chopped parsley and parmesan cheese, if desired, and serve.

How to adjust the Heat level for Spicy Sausage Spaghetti Recipe

How to Add More Heat
  • Keep the recipe as is and add in some red pepper flakes.
  • You could also use a hot Italian Sausage for a variation that will add more oregano and basil tones to the dish.
How to lessen the heat factor
  • To slightly lessen heat, only add one can of chiles.
  • For a milder taste do not add any green chiles.
  • If you want no heat at all omit the green chiles and use regular bulk sausage or mild italian sausage.

Always do what is best for your family’s tastes. The cream tones down some of the heat in this dish and when I am serving to company with kids I have found 1 can of chilis with the recipe as is works perfectly.
