Three Tomato Spaghetti

3 tomato spaghetti sauce

Great weekends always include great food, and I couldn't wait to share mine with you! Ignore, for the moment, that I am not supposed to be eating tomatoes. It whips up in way under half an hour, and the sun dried tomatoes bring a rich smoky-sweet flavor to the sauce. I adapted the recipe from a recipe from Emeals.
