Jo Mama's World Famous Spaghetti by Sharlene~W My kids will give up a steak dinner for this spaghetti. It is a recipe I have been perfecting for years and it is so good (if I may humbly say) that my kids are disappointed when they eat spaghetti anywhere else but home! In fact they tell me I should open a restaurant and serve only this spaghetti and garlic bread. In response to requests, I have posted a recipe for Jo Mama's World Famous Lasagna #28559 that uses approximately 1/2 of the sauce from this recipe. Have spaghetti one night and lasagna later! ingredients: 2 lbs Italian sausage (mild or hot) 1 small onion, chopped 3-4 cloves garlic, minced 1 (28.00 ounces) can diced tomatoes 2 (6.00 ounces) cans tomato paste 2 (15.00 ounces) cans tomato sauce 2 cups water (For a long period of simmering for flavors to meld. If you don't want to simmer it as long, add less) 3 teaspoons basil 2 teaspoons dried parsley flakes 1 1/2 teaspoons brown sugar 1 teaspoon salt 1/4-1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes 1/4 teaspoon coarsely ground black pepper 1/4 cup red wine (a good cabernet!) 1 lb thin spaghetti parmesan cheese directions: 1. In large, heavy stockpot, brown Italian sausage, breaking up as you stir. 2. Add onions and continue to cook, stirring occasionally until onions are softened. 3.
