    Love it! The tomatoes are key here- it's not hard to make a great (quick) sauce when you start with the best ingredients you can find! Sometimes I'll throw in a splash of red wine, if I have an open bottle, for a little extra zing. I just found Pomi at Whole Foods, my go-to has been San Marzano, I'll have to give them a try. Either way, the sauce looks delicious!

    I make this recipe all the time- kids and adults alike love it! I haven't purchased jarred tomato sauce in many years. I'm not sure how they can make it taste so terrible!

    Sounds very like the tomato sauce I've been making for years, except I use normal olive oil, not extra virgin – I've no idea where the recipe came from. Try it on home made pizza, it's gorgeous πŸ™‚

    I'm 100% for tomato when it comes to pasta. I kinda hate the carbonara kind… Definitely will make this soon enough. Sounds like something I can whip up in a sec! ..or a minute. πŸ˜‰

    Simple sauces are the best! What can beat quality ingredients made well?

    This looks great!

    I make sauce on a large scale in my crockpot, and can it. Cause I'm nerdy like that.

    Well I just made home made pizza and was looking for a pizza sauce from scratch. I also just made home made ravioli (butternut squash) for the first time. It was yum. Thanks for the quick how to. So glad to find another foodie blog!
