Remember in the Godfather when one of the capos teaches Michael Corleone how to make ragu just after the Don has been shot? This is kind of like that (obviously without the attempted murder and subsequent assassinations which in my experience tend to put people right off their dinner).
Quantities serve 15-20
Pour the veg oil into the biggest pan you can find and put it on the stove to heat up. Open the cans of tomatoes and add them to the pan, pour in the entire bottle of wine. Bash the garlic cloves with the back of a knife, peel them and bung them in whole. Bring to the boil and leave to simmer for at least 1 hour. Once it is well and truly cooked taste it and adjust the seasoning with a little salt and possibly some sugar.
In the meantime, get some other sucker to slice the onions into thin slices. Chop the mushrooms into quarters and the sausages into chunks (about 6 per sausage). Take as many frying pans as you can find and divide the onions between then with a little veg oil to stop them sticking, fry them over a low heat until the onions have become soft and translucent, then add the sausages (placing all the veggie ones in one pan to keep the hippies happy). Get various people to supervise the pans to ensure they don't stick. The aim is to brown the sausages on all sides but if this isn't happening because you don't have room in the pan it shouldn't matter too much since you can finish off cooking them in the sauce if need be. Once they have browned a bit add the mushrooms and continue to fry until they are softened.
Add the sausages and veg to the hot sauce (you may need to a second pan to do this) and allow to simmer for another five to ten minutes - make sure the segments of sausage are completely cooked through and serve with either jacket potatoes (easy) or mash (hassle).
