This is a quick and easy red pasta sauce and so much tastier than a bottled one! You can replace the sausage for hamburger meat, but my family prefers the sausage. Add it to spaghetti, penne, lasagna, or your favorite cooked pasta. It's yummy, give it a try!

How to Make Nonni's Red Pasta Sauce with Italian Sausage

Step-by-Step

  1. In a large sauté pan, crumble and brown Italian sausage.

  2. Add the rest of the ingredients and mix well.
    Stir intermittently, about every 10 minutes.
