New International Version (NIV)
18 Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 19 Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”
Oh what a perfect fall morning! It is cloudy with some promise of rain today. I love it! As I went rummaging through the freezer this weekend I found a package of some of my favorite sausage, Roasted Red Pepper and Spinach Chicken Sausage! Casual Gourmet is a company based in San Leandro, California. When my brother-in-law was a U.S.D.A. inspector he had an opportunity to go into their plant. He told me that it was spotless and that they make a really great product. Their products are low fat, pork free, gluten free, no msg, and no nitrites but surprisingly very tasty. Because they use chicken and turkey they can keep the sausage relatively low in fat. We started buying their sausage at Costco, but we can also buy it locally at Krogers. We have tried all their different varieties and we like them all. This weekend I decided to add this sausage to some homemade spaghetti sauce and the end result was some of the most flavorful sauce I think I have ever made. If you have a chance to buy some of the Casual Gourmet sausage I don’t think you will be sorry.
I am also going to add a few hints for thickening spaghetti sauce at the bottom of the recipe. Your sauce may not be runny but sometimes mine is 🙂
