Mom's Spaghetti Sauce With Sausage

READY IN: 3hrs 30mins
Recipe by Debbie R.

This is a fair amount of work, especially if you make the meatballs to go with it, but boy is it worth it.

This was very good. It will be made again. It was a bit oily, I guess it came from the sausage. No mushrooms were added, because I didn't have any. Made or Photo Tag.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Leave sausages whole. Brown for 45 min over medium heat.
  2. Saute the onion, green pepper and garlic in a little olive oil.
  3. Put sausages and vegetables into a dutch oven. Add tomatoes, tomato paste and water.
  4. Add listed spices to taste. Add mushrooms.
  5. Cook 2 - 3 hours over low heat. Keep a close watch as it can scorch. If it gets too thick, add some water.
  6. This is beyond good if also served with the recipe I posted for Mom's Italian Meatballs so that you get all those flavors and can eat a little sausage and some meatballs at the same meal.
