"This is a very simple recipe to make and tastes great too. This sauce tastes extra good if you add fried meatballs or pork spareribs to the sauce. Another good addition is a can of drained peas, if you like them. Happy eating!" — BIGRED7197

Yes I just would like to you should definitely use almost a tsp. of sugar to help w/ the acidity of the tomatoes, and to make sure if you are using meatballs and spareribs to cook them for the full three hours in the sauce!!! Enjoy!
Great, simple and easy. I make this in a crockpot and use 3 finely grated carrots instead of the sugar. Turns out great and freezes great.
Great! Easy and just like my nana's. I froze the rest and later used it in cacciatore with peppers and onions and chili so far.
The recipe reminds me of my italian friends regular sauce. I added a little of oregano, because the sauce was a little sweet. I also added some italian link sausages. YUMMY!!!!!
This is my favorite tomato sauce and it's great as is! Works wonderfully in lasagna and is delicious on its own.
Very easy and very good. Will keep these ingredients in the cupboard for a quick company dinner.
Instead of garlic I use onions. I think the garlic contrbutes to the bitterness which is why sugar is needed. I have never had to use sugar. Make sure you stir the paste constantly so it cooks. I also add I can of water which also cut down on the acidity but still keeps the sauce thick. This is my Italy born mother's recipe.
Very easy, tasty, and I like it with just a little sugar. Good even without meat.
