P...I made this exactly as directed, even down to the Cento tomatoes and the cubed prosciutto. I let it simmer in my crockpot for the time needed and the smell is fabulous. You are right, it makes a lot of sauce. The flavor is wonderful, rich with the tomatoes not being overpowered by other spices and the prosciutto added the just the right touch without standing out. I am going to use it tonight for pizza and freeze the rest in quart containers. I can see how adaptable this sauce will be! Thank for sharing!
This is a duplicate of my own sauce except for the ham. Great addition! TIP: Tomatoes in enameled cans are less acidic (Furmano's, Snow Floss), but you can cut the acid by adding a little Coke to the sauce.
I like the tip in Step 9 to test for doneness. Also, if acidity is a problem for you with tomato sauce, a little sugar goes a long way in counterbalancing the acid..
Excellent, well worth the work and wait.
