    loveyermother's Note:

    Sweet Italian Tomato Sauce for Pasta and Pizzas This is a really fresh, light sauce, easy to assemble, and does not need a lot of time on the stove, 1 hour, tops. It's delicious with fresh ravioli, spaghetti, and terrific on pizza crust with your favorite cheese. I use Parmesan or fresh mozzarella. This is a different take on an old friend's Italian grandmother's recipe. It's a favorite in our family, and I've made it in larger quantities for large groups of college students--they really like it a lot! Recipe is easily converted to vegetarian--it's just as delicious without the bacon.
