Spaghetti and spicy meatballs

Bargain spicy sausages, some veg and tomatoes - pan of spaghetti - and cheap and cheerful dinner.  Quite easy, which is just as well, because we're both stiff and tired after faffing in the garden for much of the afternoon.  So, chopped and sauteed in olive oil - onion, celery, green pepper and some mushrooms.  Took 6 spicy (paprika and stuff) sausages from their skins and shaped into meatballs.   Fried these off with the veg for a few minutes (pushed veg to sides of pan, browned meatballs off a bit) - added 2 x tins chopped tomatoes, garlic, salt and pepper, red wine and about a mug of stock.  Simmered for 20 minutes(ish).  Meanwhile, boiled spaghetti in salted water for 8 minutes.  Test - drain when al dente - mix pasta and sauce together and scoff.  Delish.  4 pots left for kitchen fairies.
