After doing a search for tomato sauce and not finding exactly what I was looking for, I came up with this tasty little concoction. It very simple, and you probably have all the ingredients on hand.

Yummy! We are vegetarians so we didn't use "real" meat... and it was still awesome!

Made it just as stated with a pinch of chili pepper at the end of the cooking time. I let it simmer for one hour and then it was thick and flavourful. Easy to make and it freezes well. This is something I will certainly make again. Thanks for posting.
