Homemade Tomato Squash Pasta Sauce

This recipe for Homemade Tomato Pasta Sauce is a vegetarian sauce to be served hot over cooked pasta. I have long been obsessed with the flavor of squash with pasta. I've been wanting to incorporate squash into a pasta dish because I love the squash filled raviolis I've enjoyed ordering at restaurants. My goal was to create a sauce that incorporated squash into it. I wanted something easier than filling raviolis, so I came up with this Homemade Tomato Squash Pasta Sauce. It's super delicious! It's quick to make and super tasty. This is a quick and tasty main dish for busy families to enjoy.
