This is a recipe from Bartolino's restaurant. It's delicious with the meatballs I have posted, or with pasta alone. Serve over 8 ounces dried pasta, cooked according to package directions.

Easy and delicious,a lighter "red gravy" than store bought jar or canned sauce. Basic sauce, basic ingredients what could be more fitting to any dry pasta that you may have on your shelf.
