Pasta Sauce

For years, I’ve made a spaghetti or pasta sauce that simmers all day long. It makes enough for many meals so I freeze it in servings for two. Recently, we wanted pasta but there was no sauce in the freezer. So, I created a quick pasta sauce. It cooked up in under an hour total time and is enough for 4 servings.
