I omitted the wine, celery, carrots, and bell pepper. I wanted a plain tomato sauce, and this recipe served as a good base. I added much more garlic & used my homegrown heirloom tomatoes. The process was fairly easy and the recipe easy to follow. I also omitted the butter and used only EVOO. I did not add chunks, as I like my sauce thin. I let this cook covered for two hours, adding in thyme, italian seasoning, bay leaves, oregano, extra salt & pepper. Then I added 1 small can of tomato sauce and let cook for another hour uncovered. Added another can tomatoe sauce, some more pepper & fresh oregano then let cook on low for another hour and a half. This came out great. I made a triple batch and was able to freeze quite a bit. The whole family was impressed, even both of my kids. I have definitely added this recipe to my book & it will remain there! Thanks so much for sharing.
