    Danny Sneade's Note:

    I got this receipe from Martha Stewart's website. This great recipe is from "Rao's Cookbook" by Frank Pellegrino. This stuff sells for $7.50 a quart in Florida. I use it with Frankie's Meatball s recipe found here on Recipezaar. This is the "real deal."

      DEE-LISH-US!!! Tastes so close to the real deal, which is about $7.99 a jar in the NYC area. Used a #10 can of crushed tomatoes in puree; 1 tsp. onion powder in place of fresh; 1/2 tsp. garlic powder instead of cloves; and 2 tsp. dried basil instead of fresh. Simmered about three hours all together. Watched it vanish in minutes...didn't see my kids come up for air until they asked for second helpings. Thanks for sharing!!

      I made this recipe with what I had in the cabinet. 2 cans of whole tomatoes and two cans of crushed. The reason is I did not have the higher end tomatoes in puree. Because I wanted the sauce to be think and I did not think the tomatoes in their juice would thicken it. It was very good. I will be using some of it to make clam sauce..it should turn out great.

      Oh my goodness this was so easy and utterly delightful! I added some fresh slices of grilled zucchini on top and it made for a most excellent lunch today. Would be a match made in heaven if enjoyed with fried mozzarella sticks. (-; Made and thoroughly enjoyed for 'Pick A Chef' Spring 2010.
