“Lick-the-Bowl-Clean” Italian Sausage Spaghetti Sauce

gluten free

This is my favorite “lick-the-bowl-clean” spaghetti sauce and it’s very easy to make.

Have a date night coming up? Family night? End-of-a-long-hard-week-need-a-glass-of-red-wine-and-bowl-of-spaghetti night?

Look no further. Simmer the sauce. Boil some water for pasta. Cook. Done.

So, there’s just a little sautéing to get it started, but that’s just some onions and garlic in olive oil. The rest is just simmering.

Saute. Simmer. Cook. Serve.
