When you have a busy family, meal planning can be a challenge. Sometimes you need to be able to reach into your pantry to get a quick and delicious home cooked meal on the table and spaghetti sauce can easily turn a few simple ingredients into a meal. Some people call it pasta sauce and others refer to it as marinara, red sauce or even gravy, but, whatever you call it, the recipe options are endless.
