I like the flavor that the sausage gives to this recipe.

Jo Mama's World Famous Spaghetti
  • 2 lbs Italian sausage casings removed (mild or hot)
  • 1 small onion chopped (optional)
  • 3 -4 garlic cloves minced
  • 1 28 ounce can diced tomatoes
  • 2 6 ounce cans tomato paste
  • 2 15 ounce cans tomato sauce
  • 2 cups water for a long period of simmering for flavors to meld. If you don't want to simmer it as long, add less
  • 3 teaspoons basil
  • 2 teaspoons dried parsley flakes
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1/4 teaspoon fresh coarse ground black pepper
  • 1/4 cup red wine a good Cabernet!
  • 1 lb thin spaghetti
  • Parmesan cheese
  1. In large, heavy stockpot, brown the Italian sausage, breaking it up as you stir. Add the onions and continue to cook, stirring occasionally until the onions are softened.
  2. Add the garlic, tomatoes, tomato paste, tomato sauce and water. Add the basil, parsley, brown sugar, salt, crushed red pepper, and black pepper. Stir well and barely bring to a boil.
  3. Stir in the red wine.
  4. Simmer on low, stirring frequently for at least an hour. A longer simmer makes for a better sauce, just be careful not to let it burn!
  5. Cook the spaghetti according to package directions.
  6. Spoon the sauce over the drained spaghetti noodles and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.
