Red Sauce left out overnight - Still safe to eat?

freshlycured | Jun 17, 201204:19 AM     31

Last night, after making a fresh batch of red sauce w/ sausage, I left it in the pot to cool on the stove. Unfortunately, I fell asleep and didn't remember to put in in the refrigerator until 5 this AM. The total time from coming off the heat until it was put away was about 8 hours.

Is it still safe to reheat/freeze and eat? Any advice would be most appreciated. Thanks.
