SICILIAN EASY PASTA SAUCE
This is how my mother taught me to make sauce, with a few of my own touches. It's a little unusual in that all the tomato comes from canned products, but it makes it easy to whip some up. This is a large quantity because I always make enough to freeze. You can make it with any number of meats or without if you prefer. Use the best tomato products you can afford (Campbell's, Contadina). You don't need any salt since the canned products tends to have plenty. I use the low sodium versions when I can find them. To freeze, put cooled sauce in old plastic tubs from whipped cream. When you want to use one, just dip the container in hot water and the sauce will pop out into a saucepan. Heat on low. It will take about the same time to warm up as it does to boil your pasta.
