Nana’s Spaghetti Sauce

The foundation for any great Italian meal!
8 links (2 pkgs) Mulay’s Italian Sausage – cut into 1 ½” pieces
OR substitute 2 lb ground sausage for Bolognaise style sauce
¼ c olive oil
1 onion chopped
4 cloves garlic – minced
3 lg cans crushed tomatoes (fresh if you’ve got them)
¾ – 1 c water
1 T – oregano, basil, parsley.  Salt and pepper to taste.

On high heat, brown sausage in a large sauce pan with olive oil.  When browned, reduce heat to low and add onion, garlic, tomatoes & spices.  Reduce heat to low and cover, stirring occasionally.  Let simmer on low at least one hour (up to 6 – 8 hrs )for the best sauce you have ever tasted!  Make it easy and transfer to a crock pot after the browning stage and let cook on low all day… the sausage will melt in your mouth!  Serve over your favorite pasta, with fresh grated parmesan, a green salad, and a crusty loaf of bread… YUM!  Serves8 with leftover sauce.  Can easily be doubled or quadrupled to make more!
