– 3 pounds Mild Italian Sausage – 2-29 ounce cans tomato sauce – 29 ounces crushed tomatoes – 8 ounces tomato paste – 3 tablespoons dried parsley – 3 tablespoons sweet fennel – 1 tablespoon garlic powder – 1 tablespoon onion powder – 1 tablespoon salt – 2-3 tablespoons sugar – 2 teaspoons pepper – 3/4 cup white wine


In your crock pot, add the following sauce ingredients: tomato sauce, crushed tomatoes, tomato paste, dried parsley, sweet fennel, garlic powder, onion powder, and sugar. Add salt & pepper and white wine to taste. Stir all ingredients together until they are well combined.

After adding the Italian Sausages to the sauce, leave them whole until they have cooked before cutting them up.

Turn the crockpot to high and cook the sauce for 4-6 hours. Once the sausages are tender, remove them from the sauce and cut them into 1-inch chunks. 

Finally, add the sausage pieces back into the sauce and turn the slow cooker to low. 

Let it simmer until you’re ready to serve. You can either dish this up immediately or wait another hour before shifting the crock pot to warm.
