Notes

This sauce has to simmer for several hours so it's best to make on a weekend. It freezes great! This is from "Causing a Stir".

i actually made this last night...it wasn't bad. I changed it up just "a little", instead of using the italian sausage i used smoked turkey (link) sausage. Everything else from this recipe i followed. My two year old son tore this up. It was good. I did have to add just a little bit more sugar, though. And OH! i cooked it in a slow cooker instead of on the stove.
