Italian Sauce

This can be used for Baked Ziti, Spaghetti, or other Italian dishes.

1 lb of ground Turkey Italian sausage, ground turkey or beef can be used(optional)
3 15 oz. cans of tomato sauce (I like Contadina)
1 6 ounce can tomato paste
1/4 cup parmesan cheese
2 cloves minced garlic
1 TBS oregano
1 TBS basil (1/4 cup if using fresh chopped)
1 TBS fresh chopped parsley
1 tsp. fennel seed, ground or chopped fine
1/2 cup dry red wine (optional)

Brown meat in a medium saucepan. Drain any oil. Add the rest of the ingredients and cook on low for as long as you like. I simmer for a couple of hours, but you can use it right away if desired.
