      Delicious spaghetti & meatballs! I checked this recipe over and over, to see if I overlooked basil or oregano for the sauce, but made it as posted and it was fabulous - the sausage added so much flavor, I wouldn't change a thing. The meatballs were very flavorful and soft, not rock hard like I'm used to making (LOL), thanks to cooking them right in the sauce. I highly recommend this.

      Excellent! We think this would also be very good without the meatballs (with just the italian sausage).
      We're planning on canning a big batch of the sauce without adding the italian sausage because the sauce tastes so wonderful! We'll use it as our italian red sauce.
      Note: we used the drainage from the crushed tomatoes as part of our water base.
