    amdorn's Note:

    Very robust, hearty, and perfect to cook ahead of time in large batches and freeze for later use in the colder months when the fresh produce is not available. I use fresh home grown tomatos and peppers for this recipe

      This was my first time making homemade spaghetti sauce and it was really pretty easy. I sautéed the onions while the tomatoes were boiling to speed things up a bit. I left out the peppers because I don't like them and next time I will add mushrooms (I would have this time but I didn't have any on hand). I didn't have Italian or pizza seasoning, so I used basil and oregano instead. Also, I didn't blend my tomatoes before adding them to the pot; I just roughly mashed them with a potato masher once they were in. I like my sauce a little bit chunky. I got exactly four cups of sauce. This was a great recipe to try for a first-timer. Thanks for posting!
