  1. I recommend using tomato sauce that has no additional seasonings.
  2. You can easily double this recipe, then freeze some of it so that you have pasta sauce on-hand at any time.
  3. This is a recipe that gets better as it is in the refrigerator. 
  4. This sauce will keep up to 4 days in an air-tight container, or up to 4 months in the freezer.
