Kalyn's Garden Tomato Pasta Sauce with Italian Sausage and Basil

(In August of 2006 I posted a recipe for Sausage and Basil Marina Sauce with Fresh Tomatoes which is an improved, slightly revised version of this recipe. That post has step-by-step instructions with photos. In 2006 it wasn't possible to update an old post without breaking the link, so I am leaving this here in case anyone had the recipe bookmarked.   Click the link above to find the new recipe.)
