Finally, a thick and rich Spaghetti Sauce with no tomato paste or tomato sauce. This "from scratch" recipe is easy, fresh and simple. I always decide to make spaghetti and then don't have tomato paste or sauce or I ran out of Italian seasoning. This is even better the next day. - A food processor can be used to smooth the sauce if the tomatoes are too chunky.
