Spaghetti Rice


This recipe was inspired by my friend LaShaun. We were talking about food (we do that a lot), and she mentioned that her husband didn't like spaghetti noodles.  She said she always serves his spaghetti sauce over rice.  I thought that was very interesting. I remembered that I had a taco rice recipe, so I doctored it up and turned it into spaghetti rice!

This was really good and a fun twist to traditional spaghetti.  This makes a ton.  Fortunately, it is great reheated.  I had some for lunch the next day and it was just as good as the night before.  Serve this with a nice piece of garlic bread for a quick and easy weeknight meal!



Spaghetti Rice
(Printable Recipe)

1 lb. Italian sausage
1 Tbsp Italian seasoning
2 tsp dried minced onion flakes
2 tsp minced garlic
3/4 cup water
2 8 oz. cans tomato sauce
1 1/2 cups cooked white or brown rice (use more or less depending on how saucy you want it)
cheese for topping

Brown the meat in a skillet and drain off fat (I use a collander). Return the meat to the skillet; add the Italian seasoning, garlic, onion flakes and water, mix and simmer for 5 minutes. Stir in the tomato sauce and rice. Heat in skillet for 5 -10 minutes, until heated through. Top with parmesan or mozzarella cheese.

  1. I love spaghetti rice. We make this often with our leftover sauce from the night before. Reheated pasta doesn't taste quite the same and pasta two days in a row doesn't work for me. It's amazing how reheated rice can sometimes even taste better the second day! Nice sauce recipe!
