This is a hearty pasta sauce that is so flavorful you will NEVER use store bought pasta sauce again! Feel free to add other veggies such as shredded carrot and shredded zucchini. It's a great way to sneak in veggies for those that don't like them. It's so good, you won't need to add meat. You could but it's not necessary! I promise!!
