Simple pasta sauce for 2-4 people.

I have to admit, nothing beats my mother and mother-in-laws homemade pasta sauce. Yum!!!

I do however have a little version of tomato sauce of my own that takes about an hour and a half and serves 2-4 people.

1 large can of whole tomatoes
teaspoon of honey
package of turkey sausages or any kind of sausage
salt, pepper
1/4 of a red or green pepper if you have it
1/4 of a large sweet onion

throw some olive oil in a pan and cook chopped onions for about 8 minutes. Add chopped red or green pepper if you have it.
throw the turkey sausages in. cook until done. Take them out and put aside. Cut them into bite size pieces. I sometimes leave one sausage in the pot.
add the can of whole tomatoes and squish them.
add honey.
let it all come to a boil
take a hand blender and blend
add salt, pepper, garlic and basil. I sometimes throw in a little red wine if I have it.
let simmer for an hour with cover on most of the way. should leave an opening for the steam to get out. Last 20 minutes or so, add the cut up sausages back in. My husband and I really enjoy this.
