Recipe by evelynathens

A wonderful, fast sauce. This pasta dish is definitely good enough for company. Cooking time includes the time it takes to boil the pasta.

I thought this sauce was delicious and it easily makes enough for 1-1/2 pounds of pasta, which is what I will do next time. Canned tomatoes don't always agree with my husband and by increasing the amount of pasta, it will spread the sauce further and maybe not bother his stomach so much. I used 2 heaping tablespoons of dried basil, since that is what I had on hand but will definitely try it with fresh basil when I can grow my own in the summer.
