I followed the recipe exactly- I didn't care for the sauce. Way too much sausage for the amount of sauce. I will have to try to somehow add sauce to this, sorry!

It's as classic and simple as can be and it took me back in time to a recipe in my younger days that we also used for pizza sauce. Perfectly delicious!

one change I made is to add a small can of tomato paste to thicken the sauce. Also, doubled the spices.

So easy to make and so delicious. My family LOVED it.

I remember finding this recipe on the back of a Contadina can back in the 80's n so glad I found it on here!
