I never knew homemade spaghetti sauce was so easy! After the sauce had simmered for two hours I added a pound of sliced fresh mushrooms and a pound of browned ground sausage. We ate it over spaghetti squash and it was delicious!

A great fresh taste that you can't get from a jar.<br/><br/>This recipe is great, and it's very forgiving if you want to make modifications. I've added bell pepper (because I had to get rid of it), adjusted the amounts (again, for the sake of using up what I had), etc., and it always turns out great. Or, just make it as-is, and it's still wonderful. I like to make a bunch of this at the end of summer and freeze it for the following year (and then we add ground sausage when we're ready to top our spaghetti).

This recipe is amazing!! I have never made tomato sauce before but wanted to use one that called for fresh tomatoes, using the tomatoes from my friends' garden, so this fit the bill. It was simple, straight-forward, and absolutely delicious!!! I didn't have enough tomatoes so I made a half batch and that was plenty for me and my toddler to eat for days. Now I'm begging people for their home-grown tomatoes so I can make more and more of this sauce :) As others have mentioned, do watch the sugar/sweetener because you may not need that much!

Easy and tasty way to preserve the bounty of tomatoes. Note to self: peel tomatoes first, picking out peels takes forever! Made for CQ14.

This sauce is delicious! I cooked it about 45 minutes until the desired consistence (time depends on quantity AND size of the pot). I love the herbs very much! I did not add sugar as my tomatoes were sweet enogh.Thanks a lot for this delicious sauce. Made for Culinary Quest 2014

Good recipe, but a bit heavy on the basil. I would cut the basil in half.

Very nice and fresh tomato sauce! I had a green pepper to use so added that in place of one of the onions, otherwise made as directed. I added some Italian turkey sausage before serving and served over whole wheat pasta and we really enjoyed - thanks for sharing the recipe!
