Prep: 14 minutes; Cook: 28 minutesThis versatile sauce is perfectly suited to top your favorite pasta, but don't stop there. Use it to flavor fish or chicken for a quick entrée. It's an ideal sauce for spaghetti and meatballs, too. Or simply simmer some turkey Italian sausage in the sauce and serve the sausage hoagie-style. The sauce freezes well and can be ready in minutes with a quick thaw in the microwave. Microwave at MEDIUM-LOW (30% power) for 8 to 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
