Italian Sausage and Veggies Spaghetti

In honor of National Spaghetti Day (January 4!) I wanted to share one of my favorite and delicious spaghetti recipes! All you need is ground italian sausage, canned tomatoes and all the veggies you love.

My favorite way to bulk up my meals is with veggies that I normally do not eat-- you know, to change it up. So for this recipe I added green bell peppers and fire roasted canned tomatoes. YUM. I was hoping to add spinach to this recipe but I ran out this week! DARN.

I hope you enjoy!
