NOW it's summer...
It's been a while since I've posted the recipe, so here's a LINK. It's tasty, it's easy, and did I mention? It's no cook! Well, you do need to cook the pasta -- but I'll bet you could sweet talk someone in your house to do that for you; I know I sure can.
Addendum: Carol mentions in comments that her hubby prefers a meat sauce. While I wouldn't add meat to this one, I do have a favorite cooked sauce that could take on some meat quite nicely. It's an Alton Brown recipe for ROASTED TOMATO SAUCE. If I were to make this for a carnivore, I would saute up some Italian sausage (or ground meat, whatever), drain it, then return it to the pan and add the sauce to cook for that last 5 minutes the recipe calls for. Easy. Confession time: I love this roasted tomato sauce and even planted plum tomatoes so I can make it more often. However, I take the easy way out and just puree the cooked veggies in the food processor, not a food mill. I'm sure it's more elegant milled and skins removed, but hey, we need that extra fiber! Also, this works just as well with a smaller number of tomatoes -- just adjust your oil amount (they need to be nicely coated, not swimming in it) and likewise the onions, etc.
