Just a random find on the internet, it sounded good so I made it, nice flavor. Feel free to 1. Add sliced canned or fresh sautéed mushrooms to the sauce while it is simmering. 2. Add cooked meatballs to the sauce while it is simmering. 3. Mix the sauce and pasta together, pour into a casserole, top with cheese, and bake for 20-30 minutes to make a casserole.
