Mama's Spaghetti Sauce With Italian Sausage

READY IN: 1hr 20mins
Recipe by Chocolatl

From Dom DeLuise. This can be actually be served without pasta. Some recommended pastas are ziti, rigatoni, ravioli, and angel hair. Use hot or sweet sausages, or a combination, your choice. Add a couple more mushrooms if you like them.

We loved this! Nice and thick and hearty! The only thing I added was garlic.....just can't make spaghetti sauce without it. Made for Culinary Quest Summer 2014.
