My first time making homemade tomato sauce and I had fun doing it. The recipe didn't say what kind of tomatoes to use so I picked my favorite ones - roma tomatoes. I used 9 ripe roma tomatoes. I had fresh basil, chopped. In placed of Italian Seasoning I used a small amount of fresh sage, oregano, thyme and a tiny sprig of rosemary- all finely diced. I added the rest of the ingredients called for in the recipe and simmered, covered, for 2 hours. Towards the 2 hour mark I tasted it and thought it needed just a pinch of sugar to cut down on the amount of acidity and a little salt, to taste. I continued to simmer for a while more, uncovered until it thickened a little. Tasty, flavorful after simmering for a while. Next time I make this I will make it a point to cut down the veggies into really small pieces or better yet, grate it into the sauce.
