Kicked up Jar Sauce Thick and Chunky

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by Rita~

I just can't do straight jar sauce so I kick it up. Never add sugar for I find them very sweet. I make this different ever time so do adjust to your liking and what your cupboard holds.

This was so good on our spaghetti tonight and we'll enjoy it again! I really like the peppers in it. I did change 2 things, I made it for 4 of us and had to double the amount of sauce because there just wasn't enough. I also cut the mushrooms in half so my kids could easily pick them out. Made for ZWT7, Thanks Rita! :)
