This recipe serves as an excellent base. I sauteed garlic and onion in butter before adding the sauce and butter. When the sauce was done I turned off the heat and stirred in 1/2 cup cream and 2 tbsps chopped cilantro. Now that was yummy not only did the kids like it but the grown ups too! Read More

This was interesting. As the recipe is it didn't have much taste so I added some garlic a little sugar (it was bitter) and a little Italian seasoning. Not bad for sauce you make in five minutes. Read More

I will never buy ready made sauce again! This is a wonderful sauce or use it as a base as I did. I browned some Italian sausage. Removed from the pan and added some stir-fry veggies and the butter. When tender added the tomato sauce. Then added the sausage and pasta. No need to add any salt or other spices which are all in the sausage. It was so good! Read More

This is an old favorite of mine my grandmother would make it for my cousins and I all the time. We called in cremets and tomato sauce. I make it all the time on the weekends now when my daughter wants a quick spaghetti meal only thing is we use elbow macaroni and add pepper to the sauce. I still love it to this day! Read More

It was so simple. A five minute sauce. I made a few minor changes. I used oregano basil and garlic in tomato sauce and added a dash of lemon to give it a kick but i wonder if theres anything I could add to thicken it up? That would make it perfect Read More

Great for kids as they often refuse my regular sauce with chunks of vegetables and lots of spices. Read More

This was a great base for a sauce. I added a can of mushrooms some garlic powder and onion powder two tablespoons of butter and artichoke hearts. My husband loved it! I can't give it five stars because I'm not sure how it would have tasted if I hadn't added the ingredients that I did. My husband particularly loved the artichoke hearts. I love mushrooms in everything! Read More
