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

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.

I know I'm cheating by rating my own recipe but it is the only way I can add some comments about how I have changed this up since I originally posted it. Like many of the reviewers, I always add some sugar to this. I also add a splash of balsamic vinegar or red wine (or both!). I usually omit the onions unless I adding meat to it, but that is because my daughter is a purist and can find a microscopic piece of onion in her food. :) If you have fresh basil available, I absolutely recommend using that instead of dried. I take advantage of the summer basil and fresh tomatoes by making huge batches of this sauce each year and canning it for use throughout the year. The variations I just described are what go into the jar. I then add whatever we are in the mood for when I heat it up (roasted red peppers, meat, onion, etc). As a starter, I still think the recipe as posted is a great starter recipe. The great thing with this kind of sauce is that you can get creative and find new ways to dress it up. Enjoy!

This turned out very good. I added the sugar recommended in the reviews. I accidently purchased tomato sauce instead of the crushed tomatoes but needless to say it worked out well just the right consistency. I used it over spaghetti in the Chicken Parmesan bundle recipe
