I may be partial, but then again I think my mom makes the "bestest" Sausage Marinara Sauce ever!!! She does not have a recipe, so when I was home last she showed me how to make it.
Apparently when one is counting calories, such as I, there is a need of a recipe with measurements, so I came up with my take on mom's sausage marinara sauce. I hope you enjoy it as much as we do.
Sausage Marinara Sauce
4 Sweet Italian Sausage Links (Giant Eagle, no peppers added)
1 28 oz. Can Crushed Tomatoes with Basil (365, Whole Foods, Organic)
1 Medium Sweet Onion, chopped
4 Cloves of Garlic, minced
2 Tablespoons Extra Virgin Olive Oil (Trader Joe's 100% Italian Organic)
Dried Bay Leaf
Remove sausage from casings, pull sausage apart into small pieces and saute until brown, set aside.
In separate saute pan add olive oil, once heated add chopped onion and saute until translucent. Add minced garlic, saute just until nutty smell, do not brown. Add crushed tomatoes and bay leaf heat through, add dried basil, oregano, garlic powder and salt and pepper to taste. Add brown sausage and simmer on low for about 20-30 minutes allowing flavors to incorporate.
Serve over your choice of pasta.
