Notes

This makes a great, slightly sweet pasta sauce. It's unusual to have a red sauce without a garlic component to it. I did not miss it. I did substitute Hormel pizza ready canadian bacon for the turkey pepperoni as I could not find the pepperoni. That's fine as I will use the leftover bacon in potato soup next week. In addition to fresh parley and basil, I added fresh oregano and marjoram from my herb garden. I have to say that the sauce is quite addictive...kept making myself another bowl(and licking it clean!!)
