This sauce is an easy and delicious alternative over what you buy in jars. I use lots of extra garlic in mine! Every time I cook stuffed pastas like asparagus ravioli, my guys asks for this sauce! Don't forget garlic bread and wine!

I only used 2 garlic cloves and added Italian seasoning as others suggested. I also used a potato masher to break the tomatoes down into more of a saucy consistency. I added a little chicken broth and reduced the sauce to make it thicker and threw in a little sugar because I like a sweeter sauce. It was delicious! Read More

This is 5 stars for a SIMPLE quick tomato sauce. I needed a quick sauce for meatball sandwiches and this worked really well. Next time I'll try adding a little Italian seasoning. Try this recipe! Read More

Very easy and simple. I love that the ingredients are items I typically have in the cupboard. Other than wishing I would have used the small diced tomatoes instead of the chunky ones recipe was great. Per other reviews I added Italian Seasoning and Oregano for additional flavor - glad I did.
