UPDATE JUNE 22, 2011: I made this sauce again for lunch without the flour and water and it was delicious. My 2 and 3 year old boys devoured their pasta and had second helpings. This makes for a great quick sauce that can be cooked up as the pasta is cooking. JUNE 20, 2011: I would like to give this sauce more points but I feel that it only deserves 3 points. After adding the flour, it made the tomato sauce really pasty and gooey. The preferred method to thicken up tomato sauce is to let it reduce rapidly over high heat, or slowly over medium/low heat, to the desired consistancy. This sauce is perfect without the addition of flour and water at the end. The other change I made was adding garlic powder and salt to taste because I had no garlic salt. I will make this again but omiting the flour and water at the end. Just add the minced garlic along with the olive oil and basil and cook accordingly.
