Clean out the Fridge Pasta Sauce

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by JustJanS

We're off on vacation, so we made this last night to use up a few things that would be science experiments if we left them in the fridge 'til we got home! 2 of us ate all of this, but you could stretch it out to serve 4 with a salad and crusty bread.

Perfect recipe for tonight ! I even had two different types of pasta to use up . The olives I had were black and I had a few tiny mozzarella balls that I also stirred through the sauce. Excellent way to go !!
