You really should have seen this coming. Using the leftovers from That's a Spicy Sauce to make a homemade spaghetti sauce with green bell peppers, mushrooms, and sweet italian sausage.
Brown SWEET Italian sausage, set aside to drain. To fat, sautee one small diced yellow onion and one diced green bell pepper. Add one tablespoon minced garlic, two tablespoons tomato paste, one teaspoon sugar, cook until paste bubbly. Return sausage, add spicy sauce, one can sliced mushrooms with juice. Cook until sauce thick.
Scaled for Likability: Great
Last night was good, today was great. Spicy sauce had time to develop overnight, losing some of its heat from the red pepper flakes. Sweet sausage and a teaspoon of sugar ensured the heat would be completely balanced. Green bell pepper added a much needed bitter undertone and the mushrooms were just an added bonus. Who doesn't love mushrooms in the spaghetti sauce?
