Quick Better Than Spaghetti Sauce (Marinara) (Vodka)

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Jusmi71

Mild Italian Sausage and Jar Pesto make this quick recipe tops. This sauce has the flavor and texture that I really enjoy and can't find in any jar sauces. Plus it's quick and easy. An easy variation on this recipe is to add a cup or so of half and half or heavy cream at the end to make a wonderful vodka cream sauce.
