The BEST! I have finally found an easy, delicious Italian Style Tomato Sauce. I didn't have plum tomatoes in the cupboard, so I used Accent Tomatoes we have here in Canada. Thanks for posting!!
This was a nice thick sauce. A little bit more onion than I like. Next time I will use less. I put ground beef into it also. Thanks Darlene Summers. Bullwinkle.
