      The best tomato sauce I have ever made! I used this as the sauce in a turkey and vegetable lasagna and I've decided this will be my go to tomato sauce recipe from now on! I left mine to simmer a bit longer and it was nice and thick. I loved the chunks in mine, but I'm sure it would be easy to use an immersion blender if you prefer a smoother sauce. Since I wasn't making the meatballs, I browned the turkey meat from the recipe in the pot and then used the pan drippings and additional olive oil to saute the onions. Thank you Muffin, we loved this! Made for Pac 2011
