1 small onion, chopped (optional)
3 -4 garlic cloves, minced
1 (28 ounce) can diced tomatoes
2 (6 ounce) cans tomato paste

2 teaspoons dried parsley flakes
1 1/2 teaspoons brown sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1/4-1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
1/4 teaspoon fresh coarse ground black pepper
1/4 cup red wine (a good Cabernet!)
1 lb. thin spaghetti
parmesan cheese

Directions:

1. In large, heavy stockpot, brown Italian sausage, breaking up as you stir. 2. Add onions and continue to cook, stirring occasionally until onions are softened. 3. Add garlic, tomatoes, tomato paste, tomato sauce and water. 4. Add basil, parsley, brown sugar, salt, crushed red pepper, and black pepper. 5. Stir well and barely bring to a boil.

6. Stir in red wine.
