Can I say that Polish spaghetti tastes better than Italian spaghetti? Maybe not. But I can say that Polish spaghetti is just as amazing!
Ingredients You Need To Make Polish Spaghetti
To make this Polish spaghetti, all you need is sausage, tomato puree, spaghetti, cheese, garlic powder, sweet paprika powder, and salt.
Even though I love Polish food, I prefer cooking with Italian pasta. I always use Barilla.
Also, in Poland, people usually buy a block of cheese, then grate them by themselves. You can use any cheese you prefer, but Parmesan gives the best flavor! I also prefer to use a thicker grater, so that the cheese doesn’t coagulate.

Making this Polish spaghetti with fried sausages meal is easier than you think. Simply cook the spaghetti in the amount of water mentioned on the packet.
While the spaghetti is cooking, dice the sausage and fry in another pan. Place it on a plate, and cook the tomato paste with spices in the same pan.
Place the cooked pasta on plates and ladle some hot tomato sauce on top. Top this with fried kielbasa sausage and cheese and enjoy!
