    Lainey6605's Note:

    I love preparing this sauce in the morning in the slow cooker and letting it cook on low all day. When I get home, I just boil some pasta and serve with a salad and some garlic bread. My family loves it.

      This sauce is really good. Even my son loved it. I sliced spicy italian sausages, that way I can omit them for my son. And we like to have big bites of sausages. I used a red onion and no oil to brown the onion and sausage cause I used a non-stick skillet. The seasonings are perfect. I used just a bit less of garlic powder. It smelled great while it was cooking. Thanks Lainey :) Made for Photo tag

      Loved it! I will have to use more meat next time, I like my sauce a little thicker.
