This is my favorite spaghetti sauce recipe. My children love spaghetti, it is their favorite type of pasta.

Sometimes I will tell them we are having spaghetti for dinner and then serve up a different shape of pasta, like shells, and I hear lots of complaints.  When I say spaghetti they want spaghetti, not just pasta!

This recipe is basically a standard Bolognese sauce made with sausage instead of ground beef.  The sausage and the wine give a the sauce a nice rich taste.

We like it with spicy sausage, but you could always use sweet if you don’t like your pasta a little spicy. I always make a big pot and freeze it for 3 or 4 meals.
