Everyone knows how to make spaghetti. Basically you run down to the store and buy a jar of pre-made sauce, cook the pasta and you are done. Wrong !!!

This is a most excellent recipe for spaghetti sauce. Everyone who has had this recipe raves about it. The secret is in basic ingredients and the cooking time. The biggest problem you'll have with this recipe is making people leave your house, since they'll want to stay and eat it again and again. Rumor has it that a few, very nice Italian people will get upset after finding their family recipe on the web.

Peel the garlic

Set tall frying pan in mid heat. Add the olive oil and garlic to frying pan. Cook the garlic stirring occasionally, until the garlic is brown. Make sure it doesn't burn.

Add the tomatoes, black pepper, oregano, salt, basil and Italian sausage.

Set to high heat until it starts boiling, then lower the heat. Cook for at least two hours and stir occasionally. The longer you cook it the better the taste.

Watch for the oil when you first add the tomatoes, it may jump towards you.

The easiest and fastest way to peel garlic is to wrap it in rubber, and roll it back and forth a few times. We use a rubber husband, it takes us 2 seconds to peel a garlic clove.
