My Mom's Sausage Sauce with a little something extra from me!
My Mom's Sausage Sauce...
with a little something extra from me!
First comes the recipe for this delicious sauce!
1 1/2 medium onion chopped
4 tsp minced garlic
pure olive oil
2 lbs of crumbled sausage
5 large cans of Hunt Sauce (29oz each)
1 large can of Hunts Paste (18oz)
1/2 cup of fresh chopped basil or parsley
2 tsp of fresh ground cinnamon (yes ~ cinnamon~)
Cook & Drain sausage. Once cooked rinsed and than crumble into small pieces. In a big pot, heat olive oil that will cover the complete bottom of pot, add in chopped onion and minced garlic. Cook until garlic starts to turn a brown. Than add sausage and cook some more (for about 5 minutes) than add cans of Hunts sauce and paste...also add a little bit of water to sauce. Bring that to a semi boil and add basil and cinnamon to sauce. Bring back to semi boil. Once semi boiling, cover pot and reduce heat. Cook for 4 hours!
I bet you can guess what I added in the recipe to make this all my own. Yep you guessed it, it is the cinnamon. I LOVE the taste of cinnamon! And seeing how this small amount that I added in this sauce ~ adds just the right sweetness this sauce was screaming for!
Did I even mention I love cooking with my mom! She just has this way around the kitchen, that everything she makes...is AMAZING (well everything except her ham...don't ever come a running if she mentions she is making ham). The older I got, the more I appreciated & enjoyed just watching her cook in the kitchen. It seems that whenever I go home, that's is where we always end up. In the kitchen ~ cooking some amazing food!
