Name: Al's Sausage Sauce
Comments: 12/15/2014 - Modified to become vegetarian and low-salt
12/1/2016 - I made this with sweet Italian sausage for a holiday party. I should have cooked the sausages first before trying to cut them. I revised the recipe to reflect this. I increased the amount of oregano to a tablespoon, but forgot the cayenne. This amount was combined with a 16-oz package of rotini, and the combination filled the Crock-pot.
9/2/2018 - I used four grilled hamburger patties as the meat, and added them with the tomatoes and spices. I omitted the cayenne pepper, but included the salt substitute. The resulting sauce was dense with meat and thin in tomatoes.
5/18/2020 - I used 2 smoked Andouille sausages (about 5 1/2 oz), 2 small onions, only 1/2 red bell pepper, and a 4-oz can of sliced black olives. Otherwise, I followed the recipe. I used 3 cups of uncooked rotini.
6/15/2020 - I had four chicken sausages and three cups of bowties, but I used bottled Classico Tomato & Basil pasta sauce. It tasted rather sweet. We did not quite finish the bowties.
