Cecelia's Good Stuff
Garden Tomatoes used to make the sauce.

I gathered all the plum and San Marzano tomatoes and put them in a crock pot with lots of yummy herbs and spices. I made an unbelievable sauce.

Sweet Italian Sausage Spaghetti Sauce

After the sauce had cooked for twelve hours, I fried some Sweet Italian Sausage and made a huge batch of Spaghetti Sauce. I used about one fourth of it and froze the rest for later use.
