Pasta with Sausage and Tomato Sauce
2 packages Italian sausage (try using one spicy and one sweet) - should be about 12-16 sausages
2 boxes pasta (around 14oz each) I used penne pasta, but any tubular pasta will work well.
1 lg jar sun-dried tomatoes in olive oil or sun-dried tomato paste
8oz Port wine (or Merlot and 2 shots good brandy)
1 jar good quality pasta sauce-do NOT use vodka sauce
1 lg. can beef broth
fresh parsley
your favorite grated cheese

 

Cook and drain pasta.

Pot #1:
-remove casing from sausages, crumble pieces a little and sautee until browned, but not fully cooked.

Pot #2: be sure there is room to add contents of pot #1 later
-slightly reduce wine (should take at least 5 minutes)
-pour in beef broth, and let it come to a simmer
-lightly rinse sun-dried tomatoes. If using paste, skip this step. Add the whole can/jar to sauce pot
-stir gently for 5 minutes, then add tomato sauce
-let simmer for 5-10 minutes
-drain grease from sausage chunks and add meat to sauce pot
-let simmer until sauce thickens (approx 5-10 minutes at least)

Toss with pasta in a large bowl, top with parsley and cheese, and serve!
