“If you like sausage, you'll love this thick, meaty sauce! Try sweet Italian sausage for a less spicy version.” - by ITALIAN_MAN
Original recipe yields 8 servings
- In a skillet over medium heat, cook the sausage until evenly brown.
- Mix the red onion, garlic, and capers into the skillet, and cook until onion is tender. Mix in the mashed whole tomatoes, crushed tomatoes, tomato sauce, and red wine.

- Serve the sauce mixture over the cooked pasta. Top with Romano cheese.
