DIRECTIONS

  • Saute 1 lb. sweet italian sausage until light pink, almost done.
  • Add olive oil, onion and garlic and cook on medium until soft and golden brown, about 8-10 minutes.
  • Add the thyme and carrot and cook 5 minutes more, until the carrot is soft.
  • Add the red wine and cook for one minute.
  • Add the canned tomatoes and bring to a boil, stirring often.
  • Lower the heat and simmer for 30 minutes until consistensy is thick.
  • Season with salt if desired (I usually don't need to) and serve.
  • You can substitute 1 tablespoon dried thyme for the fresh thyme.
  • Try adding 2 cups of grated fresh zucchini at the same time as the tomatoes for a fresh summer sauce.
  • Try adding one pound of fresh sliced mushrooms at the same time as the carrots.
