Recipe by Jody Chinn
"Plain, simple, no frills, basic red sauce that tastes great on a variety of pasta and is not watered down. For making a good sauce, use canned tomatoes. Except for the summer months, the 'fresh' tomatoes are usually harvested when green and left a long time to ripen. Add more red pepper flakes if you like your sauce spicy!"

Not only was this EASY but it was ABSOLUTLEY AWESOME! try adding so green, yellow and red peppers too! FANTASTIC!
This was an ok basic recipe but I did have to do quite a bit of sprucing so that it would suit our taste. I added about 2 tsp of season salt, used crushed tomatoes instead of stewed and added about 2 tbls of sugar. After all that.... it tasted much better.
Disappointing. Sauce looked good, but there was no depth of flavor, no punch. Over all, a very boring sauce. Will not make again.
I'm only 15, with only a basic cooking knowledge, and I was able to cook this sauce quickly and with ease. It had a great taste, though I had no pepper flakes =[ Thanks for the recipe, I will continue to use it. 5 stars
This was delicious! It was a little chunkier than I expected, but it almost made it taste fresher that way.
We wanted something quick and easy to go with mozzarella sticks. This was wonderful. I needed to use up some tomatoes before they went bad and this was an excellent way. I am new to making my own sauces, and I am glad to have found a recipe that I liked. My husband loved it, which is saying alot.
Tasty, easy, and adaptable to personal tastes (I added more red pepper to give it punch.(
so good but when it was done i mashed it with a potatoe masher to make it less chucky
