Philly Spaghetti

Hey everyone (or the fives of people that read this blog!) Sorry for the short hiatus...we went on a long weekend trip last weekend and since then somehow life has been a blink! So today I will give you two recipes to make up for lost time.

This first recipe is super simple, quick and really tasty. This is one of those dinners you can throw together in fifteen minutes.

I found this recipe here and it's a winner. It is a very thrifty recipe also! The original recipe called for ground beef but I used some turkey italian sausage and it was great.

Philly Spaghetti

3/4 lb thin spaghetti, cooked
1 lb ground beef, turkey or italian sausage
1 1/2 jars spaghetti sauce (24 oz jar plus 12 oz)
4 oz cream cheese (half a block)
pinch of red pepper flakes

While the water is boiling and the pasta is cooking brown the meat in a large saucepan. Drain the fat and heat the spaghetti sauce with the red pepper flakes. Cube the cream cheese and drop it in the sauce, stirring until it is all melted together. Toss the sauce with the cooked spaghetti and serve with parmesan cheese.
