Italian Sausage Spaghetti "Stroganoff"

In continuing efforts to save money, or perhaps because of sheer laziness, I again decided to forgo following an actual recipe, or even following good sense.

Thought process:

I have spaghetti. Might as well save money and use it.

I will buy ground Italian sausage for my spaghetti. Yum yum!

Oh, merde, I have forgotten to buy red sauce for my spaghetti and sausage.

Hm, well, I have this sour cream, and sour cream is oh-so-yummy. Plus, the sausage will be slightly spicy, so cream will offset it!

Aren't I brilliant? Except for the part where I burned some of the spaghetti. And then overcooked the spaghetti. Other than that, it went pretty well. And guess what? It's actually tasty!! (though sour cream on spaghetti is a bit weird) I'm so pleased with myself!

Ah, sour cream, my love! Snacks, entrees, desserts; is there anything you can't do?


  1. There are no rules when it comes to food. If I can eat everything with tomato-ketchup, you might as well go for sour cream! It most certainly won't make me sour! Miles of smiles, Astrid.

  2. Sour cream is like cream cheese. So good, so versatile. Although, I doubt anyone's ever eaten sour cream as a popsicle.

  3. Sour cream is infinitely better than cream cheese! Nearly, dare I say it?, as good as soy sauce :-)

    Actually, this blog made me hungry for spicy stroganoff...
