I decided to give the 'ole sauce another try tonight (with a jarred sauce as it's base, no doubt.) It all started when I got the idea to make a Polenta dish. I don't really know what Polenta is but I know I wanted it. Well, of course, no Polenta could be found at the Greenwood Wal-Mart. Or maybe I wasn't looking in the right spot. Completely possible. Since I already had everything needed to make the sauce portion of the dish, I just decided to wing it. So very glad it worked, this is one of my new favorites!
Italian Sausage Red Sauce (or Pasta Gravy)
1 package (20 ounces) lean Italian turkey sausage (casings removed)
1 medium onion, chopped
2 tsp minced garlic
1 handful of fresh basil
2 tbl rosemary

Heat a large pot over medium high heat, spray liberally with olive oil cooking spray. Add sausage, onion, and garlic. Cook until done.
Add basil, rosemary, and sauce. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low, cover, simmer for at least an hour.
