- 1 onion, chopped
- 3 cloves garlic, minced
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 (28 ounces) can whole peeled tomatoes
- 2 (6 ounces) cans tomato paste
- 2 tablespoons dried basil
- 1 tablespoon dried oregano
- 2 bay leaves
- 1 tablespoon white sugar
- 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
- 1/4 cup red wine
- 1 pound Italian sausage (optional)
Step 1: Chop
Start by chopping some onion and mincing some garlic.
Step 2: Sauté
Heat olive oil in a large saucepan. Sauté onions and garlic until golden yellow.
Step 3: Simmer
Add remaining ingredients (except sausage links). I prefer my sauce meatless. However, if you want it meaty, remove casing from sausage links and cut into slices then mix it into the sauce. Stir well to combine and let simmer over low heat for 3 hours.
Step 4: Cook Sausages
With one hour cooking time remaining, cook and brown sausages in a skillet. When browned, place in sauce and continue to simmer.
Step 5: Serve
Remove bay leaves before serving. Serve over hot cooked pasta, with sausages either on top or mixed in.
