Recipe by FeelinYummy

A good base for an Italian pasta dish or pizza. Note: Once the sauce is prepared taste and adjust the seasoning. If the sauce tastes too acidic, add a pinch baking soda and cook for 5 more minutes. If it needs a touch of sweetness, add a pinch of sugar or a squeeze of honey and cook for 5 more minutes.
