   You may make this sauce with meat or with sausage or both if you really
   want to. The way you do it depends on what you want to do with it or what
   you like.
   
         For SAUSAGE start like this;
   
   In your pot, brown sausages very well and remove from pot. Add 1/4 cup of
   oil to pot, then the two large onions diced fine (not minced), and then add
   five to six cloves of minced garlic (or to your taste) to oil dripping and
   the onion. Very, very slowly brown onions stirring often. Do not let it
   burn or the sauce will taste burned.
   
         For MEAT start like this;
   
   Add 1/4 cup of oil to pot, then the two large onions diced fine (not
   minced), and then add five to six cloves of minced garlic (or to your
   taste) to oil dripping and the onion. Very, very slowly brown onions
   stirring often. Do not let it burn or the sauce will taste burned.
   
   Add your meat and brown, breaking up the meat into the size you want to
   eat.
   
   Continue here;
   
   Then to your pot add the two cans of tomato paste, and the four cans of
   tomato sauce. Fill paste can (just one paste can) with water and rinse out
   both paste cans. Add to pot. Fill sauce can (just one sauce can) with water
   and rinse out all four sauce cans. Add to pot. STIR. If you Cooked the
   sausages replace them into the sauce now. Add Sweet Basil, Italian
   Seasoning and Parsley. STIR. Add black pepper and 1/2 to 1 tsp of salt.
   STIR and TASTE. Add more salt if you would like.
   
   Bring to a boil (uncovered) then turn down the heat and simmer for about
   four (4) hours or until you can't wait any longer. It’s best to cook the
   sauce for at least two (2) hours to get the flavors to start to blend. STIR
   every 30 minutes or so.
   
   ENJOY!!
