Great without sugar too.

Turned out delicious and now I know I can still make spaghetti even if I'm out of a jar of spaghetti sauce. This was just as good and convenient as I had all the ingredients on hand and didn't have to run to the store. I also added some basil and browned ground turkey meat - DH loved it.

This is a great recipe for a quick, no hassle, but delicious sauce to top any kind of pasta. My kids like this better than any pre-made spaghetti sauces and even some of my "simmer for hours" sauces. It's not heavy and uses ingrediants I usually have on hand.
