In the perfect world, when I have more time, I make this sauce with fresh garlic, onions, and herbs...in the real world tonight I made it like this, and it was GOOD! Makes enough for at least 4 adults. You can substitute the spicy sausage for mild, and omit the pepper flakes if you don't appreciate the heat!
1 pound spaghetti
1 pound spicy Italian Sausage
1 28 oz can crushed tomatoes
1 15 oz can diced tomatoes, with juice
1 Tablespoon balsamic vinegar
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1 teaspoon dried basil
1/2 teaspoon dried fennel
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
1/2 teaspoon dried red pepper flakes
1/4 cup shredded Parmesean cheese
Salt and Pepper, to taste
Boil water for spaghetti. Cook until al dente.
Heat large saucepan over high heat.
Remove sausage from casings, and brown.
When browned, drain fat if desired.
Add all ingredients to browned sausage.
Turn heat to low and simmer for 15 to 20 minutes.
Serve meatsauce over Spaghetti, alongside green salad, and bread!
