I made approximately a third of the recipe with a quart of home canned tomatoes, 1/2 onion and 1 clove garlic. I used it for pizza sauce so left out the meat and simmered a bit longer till it thickened up. I loved the rich fresh flavor and aroma! I will surely use this again but will blend it next time so my husband will eat it. (He likes to think he doesn't eat vegetables ;) )And I like the idea of making a bunch and freezing it-a great idea for a homemade OAMC menu. Thanks for sharing a tried and true family recipe!
I used a tin of diced tomatoe's as that is what I had, extra lean beef, Splenda and dried basil. I also added a few mushrooms that I had needing to be used up. I made a third of the recipe and that fed 3 adults with leftovers for tomorrows lunch (for one). Yumm. Made for Photo Tag.
This was so good. I used dried basil, because I already had that on hand. The teaspoon of sugar was a little odd, but it went very well with the rest of the recipe.
