You can thank the Phoenix Firefighters for this one! It starts to tickle you taste buds as soon as it starts to simmer. By the time you get your first mouthful you can't eat it fast enough. It is has some bold flavors with pepperoni, Italian sweet sausage, and of course garlic. Some might even say you have to call the fire department to put out the crazy tastiness going on in your mouth. Yummy!

3 cans 28 oz peeled tomatoes
1 can 28 oz tomato sauce
1 bundle fresh parsley
1 small pack sweet basil spice (found in the spice aisle, or sometimes with the Mexican food spices on the Asian/Mexican foods aisle)
1 sweet onion chopped
2 bunches of garlic minced
1 pack of sweet Italian Sausage
1 stick pepperoni sliced
1/2 cup olive oil
1 Tablespoon crushed red pepper
Pour 1/2 cup olive oil in large pot. Saute pepperoni for 1 minute, add onion, saute for 1 minute, add garlic and saute for two minutes. Meanwhile brown Italian separately and then add to pot. Add all remaining ingredients including salt and pepper to taste. Simmer 3-4 hours and try to refrain for sipping it gone before plating.
Cook spaghetti as directed, serve and enjoy!
