Gli Spaghetti di mia Mamma

     Mama mia! If you want some good Italian spaghetti, just use this recipe! This is my Mama's autentico recipe...buon apetito!
     Brown 2 lbs. Italian sausage, with 1 red onion. Drain out any grease, then add: 2 jars well-seasoned (but not spicy) spaghetti sauce, 1 small can diced, stewed tomatoes, 2 peeled, grated carrots, 1 chopped or shredded zucchini, 3 cloves minced garlic, 1 tablespoon dried parsley, 2 teaspoons dried oregano, 2 bay leaves, 2 tablespoons fresh/dried crushed rosemary, 1 teaspoon or 1 sprig basil, 1 teaspoon sugar (white), and 4 oz. spinach fresh with tails removed or frozen  (if desired).
     Bring water to a rolling boil and add 1 large package Pasta d'Oro  corn pasta [gluten free] (if you are feeding a larger amount of people, you will have to double the entire recipe). Boil for 9 minutes, or until the pasta is soft but not mushy or soggy. Be sure to stir it frequently. Drain, toss with olive oil, and serve hot, putting meat and tomato mixture on top with each serving. DO NOT MIX PASTA IN WITH THE MEAT MIXTURE!!!! That will ruin it. Grate some fresh Parmesan cheese over the top of each serving.
Serve this meal with a side of salad or other vegetable, some garlic bread (gluten free, or otherwise) and some chilled grape juice. 
Dessert idea: Italian ices
Allergen information: Pasta d'Oro gluten free corn pasta is safe for those who do not have a corn allergy. For those who do, there are brown rice and quinoa pastas available in Wal Mart and other places. This is a gluten free meal
