It's very easy to do. And the sauce smells so good. And I tasted it only today (it was my lunch). It's delicious even if it's simple to do. I used a 28 ounces can of diced plain tomatoes (without sodium). I added dry thyme, dry basil, and dry oregano. About 1 teaspoon of each. I omitted the salt. This sauce could be great with spaghetti or any other pasta. Thanks Lainey. Made for Newest Zaar Tag.
