Annette’s Holiday Spaghetti

A couple of days ago I stopped at Arby’s for dinner. My sandwich was missing the important ingredient, cranberries. Adding insult to injury the guy was very rude when taking my order and the sandwich was dry. So I went to bed upset about wasting money, as I was very disappointed and still hungry.

The next night, I got home around 6 in the evening, again! I’d left my house around 8 that morning. I was tired from running errands. But! I got a ton of stuff done and product purchased for my mom’s house renovation. Well, any-who-how, I had nothing thawed for dinner. So! On the fly I made up this delicious and quick recipe.

This recipe is so easy that a kid can make it.


1 – 24 oz Traditional Barilla sauce

1 – 1lb chub/roll Jimmy Dean’s Hot Sausage

1/4 cup of diced yellow onion

1/2 teaspoon Lawry’s season salt

1/2 cup frozen collard greens

1 table spoon or less Bertolli light taste olive oil

Pasta – your choice, I used Barilla’s angel hair pasta.


Sauté sausage and onions in Bertolli’s light taste olive oil. My sausage was frozen. I thawed it in the microwave once for a minute. I didn’t want to cook my meat. After the meat and onions were almost done I added frozen greens. Let greens sauté with onions and sausage for about 5 minutes. Then add Barilla’s Traditional sauce and salt to taste. Allow mixture to simmer for about 30 minutes to allow greens to cook. Cook your favorite pasta and top it with this delicious sauce. Then yell dinner for those that can’t smell! Enjoy!
