From "Pacific Fresh" cookbook, an easy sauce for busy days. I've used it when making manicotti and of course, over plain pasta.

Quick 'n easy is right! I prefer low sodium sauces, so the ease of being able to make a quick one that I can control the salt in is ideal! I used no salt added petite diced tomatoes and omitted the salt. Loved the flavor produced by the simple combo. Thanks for sharing!

This was all right but I felt it needed a bit more spice or flavor.

This is a very nice pasta sauce with a lovely, light flavor. I had all of the ingredients on hand so it was simple and quick to put this togther. Rather than pasta I used it in Recipe#197203. Perfect combination! I'll will definitely make this again. Thanks rochsann!
