Okay this is going to sound confusing but I'm going to try and explain anyways. I only had two cans of tomato paste (6 oz) each and 1 can of tomato sauce (8 oz) so to get the sauce mixture where it needed to be I dumped in the one can of tomato sauce, plus one of the cans of paste. Then I used the empty paste can, filled it with water, and mixed it into the sauce/paste I already had in the bowl. I hoped this would create more tomato SAUCE. It did, so I added my second can of paste as the one can called for in the recipe. Whew! I hope that made sense and can possibly help someone short on igredients. So because of all that it had a very tomato-y taste so I had to add extra seasonings, which are listed below.
Instead of just oregano and paprika I also added two heaping tablespoons of Italian seasoning, a tablespoon of sugar, onion powder, two heaping tablespoons of dried minced garlic, red pepper flakes, just a sprinkle of sea salt, and some olive oil (to make it more spread friendly).I was worried that the olive oil and water I used with the paste to make sauce would seperate but it never did, even after I let the stuff sit in the fridge all day! Man was that was some good sauce!
