Ingredients

  • 1 Tbsp olive oil $0.12
  • 1 small yellow onion $0.63
  • 2 cloves garlic $0.16
  • 1/2 lb. Italian Sausage $2.75
  • 1 6 oz. can tomato paste $0.53
  • 1 28 oz. can diced or crushed tomatoes $1.75
  • 1/2 tsp salt $0.02
  • 1 Tbsp sugar $0.05
  • 12 oz. spaghetti $0.97
  • 2 oz. feta cheese $0.87
  • 1/4 cup grated parmesan $0.42
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella $0.93

Instructions

  • Dice the onion and mince the garlic. Cook both in a large pot with one tablespoon of olive oil over medium-low heat until soft and transparent (about 5 minutes).
  • Add the Italian sausage to the pot and cook through (breaking it up into pieces as you cook). Add the tomato paste, stir and cook for about 2-3 minutes more or until the tomato paste takes on a slightly darker color. Add the diced or crushed tomatoes, salt, and sugar. Stir and heat through.
  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Bring a large pot of water to a boil (this can be done while you’re preparing the sauce in step 2). Cook the pasta according to the package directions (boil for 7-10 minutes). Drain the cooked past and then stir into the meat sauce.
  • Prepare an 8×8 inch casserole dish by coating with non-stick spray. Add half of the spaghetti mixture to the dish. Sprinkle withe feta cheese. Add the rest of the spaghetti, sprinkle with parmesan cheese, and then top with mozzarella.
  • Bake the spaghetti for 30 minutes in the 350 degree oven. Let rest for about 10 minutes before cutting into eight pieces and serving.
