I made this a little spicy, but you can use less or more spice. Great and easy way to use excess tomatoes. You could also add cooked meat of your choice at the end before adding pasta. My family loved this. Just put all the ingredients except pasta in the pot and go read a book for 45 minutes, so easy the sauce makes itself. Like to serve this with a green salad and garlic bread.
