Use this easy and versatile sauce on pizza or pasta, or as a fun dip for warm cheese breadsticks. This recipe makes enough sauce for three batches of the Pancetta and Cheese Ravioli, but you might want to double or triple it and freeze 1-cup portions in airtight containers to use instead of storebought pasta sauce.
