My new go-to sauce recipe. This was a big hit. The only thing I did differently was use 3 cloves instead of one clove of garlic, add 1/4 tsp of red pepper flakes, and add an extra 6 oz. of water half-way through cooking (it was getting too thick for my taste). I also used closer to 18 oz of paste because I bought a 12 oz can and 6 oz can. I served my sauce with some shrimp, rotini, and eggplant that I roasted in the oven. We made tomato-mozzarella bruschetta with balsamic glaze on the side.

This is a new favorite sauce for me. I think using tomato paste, instead of crushed tomatoes etc. makes it taste more like restaurant style spaghetti sauce. It came together very quickly and easily and made our house smell delicious! I paired the sauce with these meatballs: 128416. Thank you so much for posting!

So easy to make and really good. No need to ever buy jar sauce again.

I must admit, I was a bit skeptical about using only tomato paste, but this was really delightful and tasty. I also used fresh herbs (as they are available in my garden right now). I will be making this again (to freeze it and have it available whenever I want)!

Fabulous, just as we expected it to be :) It is soooo easy to toss in the pan, and quite a bit cheaper too! I doubled our recipe, which was just perfect for my stock pot. Didn't add the red wine as I don't have any. I'll probably up the garlic a little next time. Great job CraftScout!

Excellent recipe. I added fresh herbs instead of dried and added around 1/3 cup red wine. Also added Italian style meatballs. Will make again. Made for ZWT 4.

I used this recipe to make homemade tomato sauce for the first time by myself - it used simple ingredients but tastes wonderful! Thank you. I left out the bay leaf and red wine, but I still think it turned out great.
