  1. Heat olive oil in a large, heavy pot over medium heat. Cook and stir onion and garlic in hot oil until tender, 5 to 7 minutes.
  2. Stir crushed tomatoes, tomato sauce, tomato paste, and water with the onion mixture until smooth; add sugar, parsley, basil, salt, Italian seasoning, fennel, and pepper. Stir the mixture, bring to a simmer, reduce heat to low, and cook, stirring occasionally, until thickened and the seasonings have permeated the sauce, 1 hour to 90 minutes.

Excellent! Next time I'm adding some garlic cloves in, too.

I was looking for a heartier sauce than a simple tomato sauce. This is it! I used it to make chicken parmesan. Thank you for an easy delish sauce.

I was really happy with this recipe. I did add about 1/2 tsp of crushed red pepper, as I was wanting something a little spicy. I will add a bit more next time. Also I used brown sugar instead...

I made this as written and it is only thought is the is very salty. I'm not going to add salt next time and it'll likely be perfect. Thank you!

I used diced tomatos already seasoned with Italian spices so all i had to do was saute the onions and garlic then pour in the cans. No spices needed!

Easy AND yummy!!! Mixed a shallot in with the onions, changed the Italian seasoning to Oregano and used brown sugar instead of white! 2nd servings seal of approval from my boys = happy momma!

I've clicked the "made it" button only three times but I've made it far more often than that over the last few months. This is now my go-to tomato sauce recipe. The recipe is very good as is but...
