This sauce goes perfectly with a sea scallop ravioli recipe I have posted. It is also great with bow tie or penne pasta. Stacey

I omitted the thyme and added 1/3 cup of finely chopped basil. My entire family ate it up!

This is a really good and hearty pasta sauce. I used a can of petite diced tomatoes with olive oil and garlic and loved the extra flavor. The sauce is not very "juicy" and would make a good bruschetta, as well.
