So quick and so easy, yet so full of flavor. Better than any stuff you'll get out of a jar and without all those preservatives. Pasta sauce does not have to cook for hours to be delicious. This one is done in as little as 30 minutes! I tweak my spices from time-to-time, and you should too. This is the only sauce we use in our household and it's a good all purpose sauce for many uses.
