This is a great rich meat sauce which is super easy to make in the slow cooker. Serve over thick pasta such as spirals.


Serves: 10 

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 kg Italian-style sausages, casings removed
  • 1 large red onion, diced
  • 2 ribs celery, diced
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 cup dry red wine
  • 1 (800g) tins Italian-style diced tomatoes, undrained
  • 1 (800g) tin tomato pasta sauce
  • salt to taste
  • 1 cup heavy cream

  1. Heat the olive oil in a large frypan over medium heat. Cook and stir the Italian sausage meat until browned, about 10 minutes. Break the meat up into crumbles as it cooks. Stir in the onion, celery and garlic; cook and stir until the onion is translucent, about 8 more minutes. Pour the mixture into a slow cooker. Pour red wine into the frypan, and stir to dissolve the brown flavour bits from the bottom of the frypan. Pour the wine into the slow cooker. Add the diced tomatoes, tomato sauce and salt to taste. Mix well.
  2. Cover the slow cooker, set to Low, and cook for 5 hours. Pour in the cream, stir, cover and cook for 1 more hour. Adjust salt again if necessary, and serve.
