Last-Minute Spaghetti Sauce

Recipe by Alan in SW Florida

Tastes and smells like it was simmering on the stove all day, but ready in less than an hour. Can be doubled or tripled easily.

This was so easy and so delicious. I added more fresh basil because i love it and deleted the crushed red pepper. What a great dinner!
