The Best Pasta Sauce Ever!

“This is actually the sauce used in Tyler Florence's "Eggplant Parmesan" recipe. I had extra sauce left over from the dish so I packaged it up and gave it to my best friend as part of her Christmas gift. She said it was, "Fabulous!" and I haven't bought a jarred sauce since!”
