Basic Sauce for Pasta

Basic Sauce for Pasta

MSPUDDING

"This is a basic mild pasta sauce my mother made for years and is still a family favorite. You can add browned ground beef, mushrooms, grated carrots, zucchini or other veggies. We especially like mushrooms or ground beef. It's easy and quick but as with most things like this, the longer and slower it simmers the better it tastes."

This was really good. I added zucchini, mushrooms and beef. The beef really sucked up the juices, I would maybe add a little more water and tomato paste if adding beef. Great flavor, recommended!
