Why I Love This Recipe

This is the best tomato-based spaghetti sauce I have ever had. If there is one recipe that brings back memories of my childhood, it's this one. Everyone I have ever served it to has asked for the recipe.

Ingredients You'll Need

3 pounds sausage, Italian
1/4 cup olive oil
3/4 cup onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 28 oz. cans canned tomatoes, hand-crushed
2 8 oz. cans tomato paste
4 cups water
2 bay leaf
sugar, dash
allspice, dash


Cut Italian sausage into bite size pieces, brown slowly in heavy pan or electric fry pan. Remove sausage and pour off fat.

In a large, heavy saucepan or dutch oven, heat the olive oil. Saute onion for a couple minutes until it is transparent and add the garlic. Saute no more than 1 minute so the garlic doesn't get bitter.

Put the sausage in the pan and stir in tomatoes, tomato paste, water, salt, pepper,bay leaves, sugar, allspice, and oregano. Bring to a boil then cover and simmer over low heat for 1 to 1.5 hours hours. Uncovering the saucepan for the last 30 minutes to allow the sauce to thicken.

Taste, add more oregano and pepper as necessary, and simmer for an additional 20-30 minutes.

Serve over spaghetti.
