Easy Tomato Pasta Sauce

While researching fun facts and history about tomato sauce, I came across something pretty ridiculous. Did you know that tomatoes and religion aren't the same thing? I was sure that they were, but WikiDiff.com tells otherwise.

"As nouns, the difference between religion and tomato is that religion is the belief in and worship of a supernatural controlling power, especially a personal god or gods, while tomato is a widely cultivated plant, solanum lycopersicum, having edible fruit."

My life is a lie.
