This was so quick and easy! I did add 1 1/2 Tbs sugar to the sauce since my DSs are used to a slightly sweeter tomato sauce. I loved that there was spinach in and I got both DSs and DH to eat it! I had to chop it up really small so they would think it was "seasoning" but it worked! Made for AUS/NZ Recipe Swap #58.
