    Jennigator3's Note:

    I use this marinara sauce when I'm in a crunch to make dinner when I come home from work in the evenings. You don't need a lot of time to make this and it tastes like it's been simmering all day. It's also a very inexpensive sauce and it can be frozen and saved when made in large batches.

      A simple and enjoyable pasta sauce. I added a tsp of splenda , just to eliminate that 'tomato sting' that you sometimes get.
      Made for SPRING PAC 2012.
