  • 3 pounds Canino's Mild Italian Sausage this is worth ordering from Denver, CO http://www.caninosausage.com/
  • 2-29 ounce cans tomato sauce
  • 29 ounces crushed tomatoes
  • 8 ounces tomato paste
  • 8 ounces fresh mushrooms slicced
  • 2-3 tablespoons dried parsley
  • 2-3 tablespoons sweet fennel
  • 1 tablespoon garlic powder
  • salt just a dash
  • 2-3 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 teaspoons pepper
  • 3/4 cup white wine


  • Boil sausage for about 10-12 minutes, until slightly cooked to get most of the fat off.
  • Cut up into big chunks and place in the slow cooker. Add all of the other ingredients; turn crockpot on low and cook all day until ready to serve
  • This recipe feeds 12-16 people.
  • Note: The measurements above for the parsley, fennel, garlic, pepper, and white wine are all approximately. When my Aunt gave me the recipe there were no measurements and when I called her she said just do as much as you would like and that she never measured and it always turned out to taste the same. So I do the same thing so these are approximate measurements, based on my hand and eye. I will note that I do use about a 1/3 of a bottle of the sweet fennel (1.5oz. bottle), as I love sweet fennel!
