This recipe serves as an excellent base. I sauteed garlic and onion in butter before adding the sauce and butter. When the sauce was done, I turned off the heat and stirred in 1/2 cup cream and 2 tbsps chopped cilantro. Now that was yummy, not only did the kids like it but the grown ups too!

This was interesting. As the recipe is it didn't have much taste so I added some garlic, a little sugar (it was bitter) and a little Italian seasoning. Not bad for sauce you make in five minutes.

I will never buy ready made sauce again! This is a wonderful sauce or use it as a base as I did. I browned some Italian sausage. Removed from the pan and added some stir-fry veggies and the butter. When tender, added the tomato sauce. Then added the sausage and pasta. No need to add any salt or other spices, which are all in the sausage. It was so good!

This is an old favorite of mine, my grandmother would make it for my cousins and I all the time. We called in cremets and tomato sauce. I make it all the time on the weekends now when my daughter wants a quick spaghetti meal, only thing is we use elbow macaroni, and add pepper to the sauce. I still love it to this day!

It was so simple. A five minute sauce. I made a few minor changes. I used oregano, basil and garlic in tomato sauce and added a dash of lemon to give it a kick, but i wonder if theres anything I could add to thicken it up? That would make it perfect

Great for kids as they often refuse my regular sauce with chunks of vegetables and lots of spices.
