Recipe by Carliey
"This is a great homemade sauce. It's savory and spicy, as well as thick and chunky. The secret is the combination of Italian sausage, green onions, red wine and red pepper flakes. Easily double or triple amount and top on anything! Even better the next day. Enjoy."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

This was a Great Sauce!!! I used italian link sausage, sliced and browned with the garlic. I used portabella mushrooms because that is what I had. I used 1/4 cup of wine and 3/4 cup water. I used less wine because I only had red cooking wine and I know it is stronger and saltier then regular red wine.Update- I made this again and had everything except used Italian diced tomatoes and got brave and used the half cup of Red cooking wine and it was super - It makes the perfect amount of sauce. Thank you for sharing your recipe
Decent taste, but I felt the red wine flavor burned through most of the other flavor. Could have been because I used a merlot I had around. Be sure not to overdo it on adding meat, or you will wind up with something that looks a lot more like a goulash.
This sauce rocks! I followed the recipe to a "T" (doubled) - except for the simmering step, I threw it all in the crockpot on low for several hours. SO Delicious! We will be making this sauce often!
My family LOVED this sauce,it will be a favorite.I followed it exactly except I used hot Italian sauage and no need for red pepper flakes.Thanks to Staci for suggesting the crockpot.
Thanks for the recipe Carliey. Karen
I loved this sauce. Perfect amount of spice for me - I made it exactly as the recipe said and wouldn't change a thing. Thanks for sharing!
This was a really nice red sauce. I used italian link sausage, browned and sliced.
I've been making this recipe for years (handed down Italian). I haven't used mushrooms before (so I look forward to adding that.) One thing you might try that makes this recipe absolutely perfect, cut sausage links into 1/2 bites (brown with onions). Add 1/2 cup celery. When sauce has simmered (at least 2 hours) add whole pepperoni cut into 1/2" pieces. When serving pasta, ladle sausage and pepperoni separately and serve with freshly grated permesan cheese. You will NEVER make this differently.
I didn't see in the recipe where it said to add the green onions, so I added them with the mushrooms. After simmering for an hour, they had sort of a weird slimy texture. That said, the flavor of the sauce was very good; next time I'll try it with regular onions.
