1 lb. Italian sausage
1 lb. country ribs (pork)
2 3.5 oz. cans Italian plum tomatoes
2 6 oz. cans tomato paste plus 2 cans water
2-4 cloves garlic
2 tbsps. minced parsley
2 tbsps. dried basil or about 8 fresh basil leaves, minced
1 tbsp. oregano
2 tsps. sugar
salt and pepper, to taste
1/4-1/3 cup dry red wine
1/4 cup olive oil

In a large pot, brown the sausage and country ribs in about 1/4 cup oil over medium heat until nicely browned. When brown, remove all but 2-3 tbsps. of the oil and combine all the remaining ingredients into the pot. A blender or food processor very easily chops the tomatoes, garlic, parsley and basil in one operation. Otherwise, the tomatoes should be put through a food mill and the garlic, parsley and basil chopped by hand.

Bring contents of the pot to a boil, reduce heat to low and simmer 1 1/2 to 2 hours until nicely thickened.

Note: A spicier sauce can be made by adding the desired amount of dried red pepper.
