Use sweet Italian sausages if you like less heat, but you may need more herbs.
1-2 tbl olive oil
1 1lb hot Italian sausages
1 onion, chopped
4 garlic cloves, chopped
1/2 green pepper, chopped (optional-I don't use them cause my husband doesn't like them)
1/2 tsp rosemary
1 tsp basil
1 tsp oregano
1/2 cup red wine
2 cans chopped tomatoes, pureed (you can leave in chunks for a more rustic sauce)
salt & pepper to taste
Brown sausages in olive oil. When brown, remove sausages and discard all but 2-3 tbl of fat. Add onions, garlic, green peppers, rosemary, basil, oregano, and saute til onion is transluscent.
Return sausages and add red wine. Let simmer til wine is reduced by half. Add pureed tomatoes, salt & pepper to taste. Let simmer 30-40 minutes. Correct seasonings. Serve over spaghetti or serve
as sausage sandwiches in french bread rolls.
