  • Prepare the spaghetti noodles according to package instructions. Separate the noodles from the water. Do not discard the water used to cook the pasta.
  • Heat a cooking pot and then add the pork sausage. Cook until the color of the sausage gets light brown.
  • Add the onion and garlic. Saute with the sausage until the onion softens. Note: the oil that was extracted from the sausage should help cook the onion and garlic.
