Meaty Pasta Sauce

I don't think it's possible to have too many recipes for pasta sauces.   Here is another fantastic pasta sauce recipe.  One thing that I love about this Meaty Pasta Sauce is that it is nice and thick.  You don't have to worry about it running into all of your other food.   Oh,  and it's delicious!

2 pounds sweet Italian sausage
1 cup onion, diced
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 (28 ounce) can crushed tomatoes
2 (6 ounce) cans tomato paste
2 (6.5 ounce) cans tomato sauce
2 tablespoons sugar
2 teaspoons basil (2 tablespoons fresh)
1/2 teaspoon fennel seed
1/4 teaspoon marjoram
1/4 teaspoon rosemary
1/4 teaspoon sage
1 teaspoon oregano (1 tablespoon fresh)
1 teaspoon Thyme (1 tablespoon fresh)
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
In a large pot cook the sausage, onion, and garlic until well browned; drain fat. Stir in crushed tomatoes, tomato paste, and tomato sauce. Mix in sugar and spices. Reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer 1 1/2 hours, stirring occasionally.   I cooked it in the crock pot this time on low for 6 hours.  I added all ingredients except the sausage at the beginning and cooked the sausage and added it the last hour.  Turned out super yummy!  And the house smelled fantastic.
