I liked this recipe. This is the first homemade tomato sauce i've attempted. I did puree it afterwards and it thickened up. It's easy and you can add what you like to adjust taste. Read More

I made this while babysitting one night. The parents had left some nasty frozen chicken strips for me to make and I just couldn't feed them such junk. Both girls just loved this! I left out the onion (cuz they didn't have one), but other than that I stuck to the recipe. I can't wait to make this for my fiance'. Read More

I made this recipe because I'm vegetarian and wanted to use up tomatoes from my neighbor. I thought I would make it and freeze it. But it was so good that I ate some as soon as it was done. This will not make it to the freezer! Read More

The sauce was great!! We used a large can of stewed tomatoes instead of fresh tomatoes since that's what we had. We also blended the sauce at the end instead of leaving it chunky. Oh and we used 3 cloves of garlic since we like garlic:). We'll be making this again! Read More

This was pretty good sauce. I let the green pepper out as I don't like the flavor but everything else I kept in. I simmered this for a bit longer than 20 minutes to get it thick but the flavor turned out pretty tasty served over wagon wheels. Read More

Some of the best sauce I've had in awhile and very simple to make. I sub'd 1 serrano pepper diced for 1 small green bell pepper diced which kicked up the heat a bit and made for quite a delicious meal. Spicy! Read More
