Basil Pasta Sauce Recipe

Publisher Photo
Nothing beats the aroma of this speedy simmered pasta sauce...except its wonderful taste. To round out the meal, toss together a green salad and pop some garlic bread in the oven as shown in the photo at right. Or, steam asparagus for a swift side dish and pick up a chocolate cream pie from the supermarket.—Taste of Home Test Kitchen, Greendale, Wisconsin
