Capellini con Salsicce

2 - 28 ounce cans of organic crushed tomatoes with basil
28 ounces of free range chicken broth (or water)
2 - mild chicken Italian sausage links
1 - spicy chicken Italian sausage link

Place tomatoes and chicken broth (or water) in a pot.
Squeeze chicken sausage from its casing into little nuggets, dropping them right into the sauce.
Cook over medium-high heat until it begins to boil (approximately 10-15 minutes.)
Lower flame and simmer for one hour, to allow the spices in the sausage to flavor the sauce.

Prepare capellini (angel hair) according to package instructions.
Serve with shredded parmesan (mild) and/or romano cheese (sharp.)

Experiment with different flavor sausages - turkey sausage will give a slightly different, denser flavor. If you prefer your sauce mild, use all mild sausages - if you prefer spicy, use all spicy!
 Serves 4

This recipe is easily adapted to more servings - for every two additional servings, add
1 can crushed tomatoes, 1/2 can (14 oz.) free range chicken broth (or water) and 1 to 1 1/2 sausage links
