This is a stand-up, zesty sauce, with a wee bite! I crafted it for an annual spaghetti dinner. It is a sauce designed by a man, and prepared using those so stereotypically "male" cooking implements: the grill and the turkey fryer!

- 4 lbs Italian sausage (hot)
- 4 lbs Italian sausage (mild)
- 8 lbs white onions, diced
- 3 ounces oregano (1 small jar standard US grocery size)

- 200 ounces tomato puree (2- #10 cans)
- 200 ounces tomatoes, crushed (2- #10 cans)

- Saute onions until translucent in pot.
- Add garlic, and ground beef, and brown the beef.
