    Chef Tom Papoutsis demonstrates how to make spaghetti sauce and pasta with sausage for a complete meal.

    Tom Papoutsis: Hi, I am Tom Papoutsis. We are going to be making a spaghetti dinner and we are going to start out by making some pasta sauce. I have got tomato puree in this pot.

    I am going to start out with two teaspoons of sweat basil, half a tea spoon of oregano, half to one teaspoon or rosemary and a quarter teaspoon thyme and I am just going to stir it very lightly just to incorporate those spices, start cooking it on low heat.

    Now what we are going to do now is we are going to add our sausage. We are just going to drop these in, kind of push them down, this is going to get covered, we have got it on low heat so we are going to let it sit and simmer for rest of the day.

    Okay, our sauce has been cooking for a couple of hours now. Now we are going to go around and we are going to try to spoon off as mush as grease as we can. Spaghetti sauce is actually completed, I am going to take about a tablespoon of salt, a little bit of olive oil in there, a nice big bunch of pasta. Now what I am going to do is I am going to move this pasta around a little bit.

    Do not just put it in a walk away from, but this pasta is done. I want to take my pasta over. We are going to actually drain it through the colander. I am going to put some sauce in the bottom of this bowl, put it in there, I am going to put some more pasta sauce on here.

    And there it is. This is how we make pasta, serve it with some sausage and maybe put a little extra sauce on top, there you have it, spaghetti in homemade sauce.
