Smoked Kielbasa in a Sweet Spaghetti Sauce

cabasa1 Our family loves to make a great meal that includes spaghetti, it is a great meal for the whole family including kids!  It is great when you can make a great hot dinner that is easy to fix for busy families!  Hillshire Farm smoked sausage is a great alternative to chicken, making it an easy and quick weeknight meal.   We used the smoked sausage to make a Kielbasa meal, you can actually buy Hillshire Farm Kielbasa but we used the smoked sausage for this recipe!

  My husband loves to make a meaty sauce so he cuts up extra sausage just for the sauce.  He cuts in into small pieces and then uses the chopper to get the pieces very very small and adds to the sauce!

cabasa3 Hillshire Farm smoked sausage is crafted to be better. Their experts have perfected the pre-seasoning of their smoked sausage over the last 75 years.  I love meals using chicken but it can be messy and time consuming, Hillshire Farm smoked sausage is cleaner and easier to work with than chicken.

We loved the flavor of the Hillshire Sausage, my 16 yr old son declared after his first helping that this recipe was “awesome” , you know when you impress your teen you have done well!

Smoked Kielbasa in a Sweet Spaghetti Sauce


  • • 1 packages Hillshire Farms smoked sausage
  • • 2 cans spaghetti sauce
  • • 1/2 Cup sugar give or take (depends on how sweet you like it)
  • • 1 box of thin spaghetti
  • • Parmesan cheese
  • For larger families double it!


  1. 1. Empty the 4 cans of spaghetti sauce into a pot and put it on low heat to start warming it.
  2. 2. I start off cutting the Hillshire Smoked Sausages! I cut sausages in half length wise, then cut it into thin slices.
  3. 3. Take a small handful of the sliced sausage and use a chopper to chop into fine pieces. I add these pieces to the spaghetti sauce that is heating on the stove. This makes the sauce meaty and adds flavor.
  4. 4. Add the sliced sausages into the sauce and stir.
  5. 5. Add 1 cup of sugar and let simmer for 5 minutes and taste. If this is sweet enough for you then cover and cook for 20 minutes on medium low heat.
  6. 6. Cook spaghetti while sauce is cooking.
  7. 7. Serve over spaghetti topped with Parmesan Cheese
