    Love to Eat!!'s Note:

    Inspired by my Dad's somewhat tamer spaghetti sauce, this is my spiced up twist on an old classic. It is easy to make, SMELLS great and makes enough for dinner plus 2 frozen dinners for two (for those nights you just don't have time to cook from scratch). This sauce comes out THICK and CHUNKY, so adjust if you like a thinner sauce. I also make this a day in advance of when I want to eat it as I like the flavor after it has been refrigerated over night and then reheated.

      pretty good stuff! i decided to wing it on the amounts of veggies i put in...a big handful sliced green onion, two small handfuls sliced yellow onion, two sliced carrots, 2 1/2 sliced ribs celery all sauteed in near the beginning. then the four diced garlic cloves. and i chopped up a fresh tomato to replace the fire roasted one suggested. this was the first time i made a meal all on my own for my family :p. YUM!! and this is a simple simple simple way of cooking the sausages. i really wanted some sort of pasta with italian sausages and searched all over for a good method to cook them. but hey they were delish in this :). served with a little quick bruschetta recipe i found on the back of our frozen garlic bread box. they really complemented each other. thanks :)
