This was quick, easy and delicious! I have another pasta sauce recipe from this site that I love, however, it is a meat sauce and requires more cooking time. I wanted a meatless sauce to use for chicken parmesan and for the pasta I serve along side. I made some changes based on personal taste and what I had on hand. I used 1 28 oz can of crushed tomatoes (did not have stewed) and italian style tomato paste. 1T dried parsley, 1t dried basil, 2 t dried italian seasoning, 1 T brown sugar to cut the acidity, 3 cloves minced garlic, 1 bay leaf, water rather than wine ( did not have any wine) and cut the olive oil in half as 6 T seemed excessive to me. Using the crushed tomatoes eliminated the need for a food processor and worked out fine. I made my sauce the night before, which allowed the spices to really set in. My chicken parmesan was wonderful! I will be using this recipe again for ease of preperation as well as taste. I have grandchildren who love pasta, but prefer a meatless sauce, so this is definitely a keeper. Thanks Jackie...a real winner!
