    FalaRedwing's Note:

    This is based on a very simple family recipe, with my own twist - one even my mother prefers! It's cooked down to be extra thick, and excellent for cold winters.

    3. 3
      Add tomatoes, sauce, and paste; stir together.
    4. 4
      Cook on med-high for 5-10 minutes, then reduce heat to med-low.

      Allow to simmer covered about one hour, stirring occasionally.
    6. 6

      I was looking for a sauce recipe that was thick since I HATE those store bought watery ones. This was wonderful!! I used fresh basil, the rest of the herbs were dry. Easy too this was the first time I have ever tasted or made homemade sauce.
