At least 12 hours or up to 2 days before serving:
Rinse casings well with cool water, allowing water to run through casings set aside and keep moist.
In a very large bowl or on a clean counter, combine meat, salt, sage, fennel seeds, garlic powder, oregano, pepper and red pepper until well mixed, using hands if desired. Let stand for 30 minutes to 1 hour to allow mixture to warm slightly. Drain casings and stuff with sausage mixture. Cover tightly and refrigerate overnight. Stuffed sausages can be frozen in airtight containers up to 2 months defrost before baking.
Bake sausages in a shallow roasting pan in a preheated 325° oven for 30 minutes or until firm. Pierce casings with a fork and allow juices to drain out of casings. Cooked sausages can be refrigerated up to 24 hours.
To serve, cut sausages into bite-size pieces and place in a slow cooker. Add spaghetti sauce, cover and simmer at low heat for 2 to 3 hours. If desired, transfer to a chafing dish. Serve hot with picks.
* Hog casings can be purchased from your local butcher.
