Bob’s Great Spaghetti and Sausage Sauce


2 20-ounce cans tomato sauce

2 12-ounce cans tomato paste

1 14.5-ounce can diced tomatoes

1 7 to 10-ounce can sliced mushroom pieces or caps

1 pack BOULDER SAUSAGE brand Italian ground sausage

1 pack BOULDER SAUSAGE brand Italian sausage links

3 cloves chopped garlic

¼ cup chopped sweet onion

¼ teaspoon oregano

1 teaspoon basil

¼ teaspoon tarragon

¼ teaspoon fennel

¼ cup chopped onions

1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil


  1. Turn on a large Crock Pot for simmering the sauce. Keep covered while simmering. In the Crock Pot, add all tomato items, spices and oil. Do not add onion and mushrooms yet.
  2. Break up and cook the ground sausage in a large covered frying pan until fully cooked. In a food processor or by hand, finely chop the sausage. Add chopped sausage to Crock Pot.
  3. Cover the link sausage ½ way with clean water. Cook link sausage thoroughly. If water is gone before they are cooked, turn frequently until cooked. Slice links sausage into 3/4 inch to 1 inch pieces. Add to Crock Pot Stir Crock Pot every 30 minutes.
  4. Adjust heat to a very slow simmering boil. Simmer in Crock Pot for 1 hour. Adjust spices to taste and simmer for 1 more hour. Spices need time to work and to distribute flavor.
