This is how I prepare Italian sausage for the spaghetti sauce or Sunday Gravy as my grandmother used to call it.
IMPORTANT NOTE: I no longer poke the sausages. I have since learned the error of my ways. Don’t poke them. Keep the juices in! 🙂
Boil the sausage in water for 30 – 40 minutes, then brown, then add to sauce and cook for 3-4 hours. The sausage comes out so tender you can cut them with a spoon!
