A hearty spaghetti sauce that goes great on top of spaghetti squash.


  • 2lb Italian Sausage
  • 1 Medium Onion
  • 4 cloves Garlic
  • 28oz Tomato
  • 12oz Tomato Paste
  • 30oz Tomato Sauce
  • 2 cups Water (Can use less dependent on simmer time.)
  • 3 teaspoons Basil
  • 2 teaspoons Dried Parsley
  • 2 teaspoons Brown Sugar (Obviously not included when preparing as a paleo dish)
  • 1 teaspoon Salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon Red Pepper Flakes (Be sure to adjust for whether using spicy sausage)
  • 1/4 teaspoon Black Pepper
  • 1/4 cup Red Wine (Omit when preparing paleo...Although this is what takes this recipe over the top!)


Step 1 In a large stockpot, brown sausage. Be sure to break it up into manageable pieces.
Step 2 Add onion and continue to cook until onion becomes translucent.
Step 3 Add garlic, tomato, tomato paste, tomato sauce, and water.
Step 4 Add basil, parsley, brown sugar, salt, red pepper, and black pepper.
Step 5 Stir well and barely bring to a boil.
Step 6 Stir in red wine.
Step 7 Simmer on low, stirring frequently for at least an hour. A longer simmer makes for a better sauce.
