This is a variation of my Grandmother's beloved sauce recipe that adds a bit more flavor to boring spaghetti. Don't let the number of ingredients fool you, it's VERY easy to make. This yields about 2 gallons of sauce, so plan to use it as a OAMC recipe or cut it in half. It freezes well and makes a great sauce for lasagna, baked rigatoni, or served over spaghetti squash. I use a store-bought canned sauce for the base to save time, but you can use your own if you'd prefer. To make a Southwest version, substitute the stewed tomatoes with a jar of salsa, and add a can of corn and a can of black beans. This sauce depends on the sausage for most of its flavor, so it would probably not make a good vegetarian version, but if anyone comes up with something, let me know!
