Pasta and red sauce are staples in my house. My husband would eat it every other day if I cooked it. I'm always trying something new with my sauce. Here's what I cooked today:
Red Sauce w/ Hot Sausage
2 lg. cans of crushed tomatoes w/basil
2 cans of tomato sauce
2 TBSP. minced garlic
2 TBSP dried Italian seasoning
3 links of hot sausage
Pour 2 TBSP olive oil into a large frying pan.
Remove casings from hot sausage and crumble into the pan. Cook over medium heat until all pink is gone, and then add garlic & Italian seasonings. Stir to mix.
Add cans of crushed tomatoes and tomato sauce. Stir to mix thoroughly.
Cover with lid and simmer for 2 -3 hours, stirring occasionally.
Serve over spaghetti. Top with fresh grated Parmesan cheese, if desired.
