So. So. Good.
- 1 Pound Italian Sausage
- 1 Large Sweet Onion, Chopped
- 3 Garlic Cloves, Minced
- 1 Tablespoon Olive Oil
- 28 Ounces Diced Tomatoes
- 6 Ounces Italian Tomato Paste
- ½ Cup Water
- 2 Tablespoons Parsley
- 1 Tablespoon Brown Sugar
- 1 Tablespoon Balsamic Vinegar
- 2 Teaspoons Dried Basil
- 1 Teaspoon Salt
- ½ Teaspoon Italian Seasoning
- ¼ Teaspoon Pepper
- Hot COOKED Pasta
In a soup pot, cook sausage, onion, & garlic, in oil, over medium heat, then drain any grease.
Stir in the remaining ingredients - diced tomatoes, tomato paste, water, parsley, brown sugar, balsamic vinegar, dried basil, salt, Italian seasoning, & pepper.
Bring sauce to a boil then, reduce the heat & simmer, uncovered, for about 1 ½ hours, or until flavors are blended.
Serve this delicious sauce over your perfectly cooked spaghetti & EAT!
Note - There is definitely some variation & flexibility in the recipe depending on your taste buds. In the past I have just used regular tomato paste, but added in a little more Italian seasoning; it was very good! SO you can always mix it up with whatever you like, or have on hand!
