My mom’s wonderful neighbor and friend, Patti, shared this delicious recipe for spaghetti sauce with sausage and pesto. The kind of chorizo sausage used in this one is not the same kind you can find in the grocery stores in the Bay Area of California. It is not the tubes of chorizo but actually sausage that stays bonded when cooked. At home, I used bratwurst or any kind of yummy sausage. In Canada, you can find the chorizo sausage in the original recipe:
- 1 jar Mezzetta Napa Valley Roasted Garlic and Caramelized Onions
- 5 Garlic cloves minced
- 1 yellow onion diced
- 8 oz. mushrooms sliced
- 2 chorizo sausages sliced and cooked
Sauté garlic, onion and mushrooms until tender. Cook sausages. Add all to sauce and simmer approx. 30 minutes. Add pesto to flavor. Serve over noodles of your choice.
