  1. 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.
  2. Very good sauce. My husband loves making it and even more he loves eating it. We always double the recipe because we both like lots of sauce on our pasta.
  3. i make this all the time its so good and fresh tasting. i don't add quite as much garlic and always use san marzano tomatoes! a little of fresh basil also makes it wonderful!
  4. This was a quick and easy sauce. Also very yummy. I added a tablespoon of prepared pesto and it was delicious. I will be using this recipe again.
  5. 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 - Read more ...
  6. Sorry my family said this tasted like heated canned tomatoes
  7. 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!
  8. I needed a quick pasta sauce and threw this together in a hurry! I added some basil and oregano and a few shakes of parmesian cheese very yummy!
  9. Not bad. I added about a tablespoon of italian seasonings and it was perfect.
