I rarely buy premade sauces.I think I have found the best one for me. I like mine one the thick side, so I used a small can of paste. but its the flavor thathas me hooked! I did add a little sugar because I like it a little sweet. perfect basil flavor.

This is delicious as is but it also a nice base to play with if you want to go gourmet.

Made this as written. My family and I loved it, perfect texture and a robust flavor. Any pasta would be proud to sport this sweet little sauce! Yummy!
