DIRECTIONS

  • Heat oil in Dutch oven over moderate heat. Crumble in Italian sausage, add garlic and cook until meat loses red color. Remove meat from pan and drain off all but about 1 tablespoon of grease.
  • Whisk in tomato paste and cook over moderate heat about five minutes, stirring frequently (tomatoes burn quickly). Whisk in pureed tomatoes and tomato sauce, then add whole onion, green pepper, cheese (a little at a time to avoid clumping), sugar, oregano, basil and fennel seed. Add sausage. Bring just to boil, reduce heat and simmer, covered, about 1 1/2 hours. (Sauce will splatter if heat is too high.).
  • Add parsley and mushrooms during last 5 minutes of cooking time. Remove onion and green pepper. Add salt and pepper. Serve over spaghetti, garnished with additional Parmesan cheese.
