Slow Cooker Sausage Ragu

  • Cooking Time:

    6 hours
  • Servings:



2 T. olive oil
1 lb. bulk sweet Ital­ian sausage
1 lb. bulk hot Ital­ian sausage
1 lg. red onion, diced
2 ribs cel­ery, diced
3 cloves gar­lic, minced
1/2 c. dry red wine
28 oz. can Ital­ian-style diced toma­toes, undrained
28 oz. can toma­to sauce
salt to taste
1 c. heavy cream

  1. Heat the olive oil in a large skil­let over medi­um heat. Cook and stir the sweet and hot Ital­ian sausage until browned, about 10 min­utes. Break the meat up into crum­bles as it cooks.
  2. Stir in the onion, cel­ery, and gar­lic; cook and stir until the onion is translu­cent, about 8 more min­utes.
  3. Pour the mix­ture into slow cook­er. Pour red wine into the skil­let, and stir to dis­solve the brown fla­vor bits from the bot­tom of the skil­let. Pour the wine into the slow cook­er. Add the diced toma­toes, toma­to sauce, and salt to taste. Mix well.
  4. Cov­er. Cook on Low for 5 hours.
  5. Pour in the cream, stir, cov­er, and cook for 1 more hour.
  6. Adjust salt again if nec­es­sary.

Serve with riga­toni, rotelle or any oth­er thick pas­ta.
