Directions:
Heat a large pot (preferably a heavy dutch oven) to medium heat and add oil. Slice and chop vegetables and add to pot, stirring occasionally. Keep garlic to the side. When vegetables are cooked, add garlic. Sauté for one more minute.
Pour tomato sauce in same pot. Fill each tomato sauce can with water and add to pot. Bring sauce to simmer making sure to stir often to make sure the bottom does not burn.
Pierce casings of sausages with knife several times each. Add to sauce and cover pot. Simmer until sausages are cooked through. Remove cover and continue cooking letting some of the water evaporate and the sauce to thicken. The longer the sauce is allowed to simmer, the better. 1 hour minimum to three hours is best. Keep an eye on the sauce and if it has become thick, cover again. Add Italian seasoning in the last 20 minutes of cooking. Add salt and pepper to taste.
If a smooth consistency is desired, set sausages aside and pour the sauce in a blender. Blend until smooth. Serve with pasta, garlic bread, and a generous amount of parmesan cheese.

This sauce is good to make when there are many small bits of leftover vegetables lying around that don't have a good use, or if you don't like eating your veggies!
