    Lorrie in Montreal's Note:

    This is the base tomato sauce for my Italian Meatballs. No matter what you add to it, more veggies, ground beef, chicken pieces, Italian sausage etc., you have a flavourful starting place.

      I just love to have this sort of thing in the freezer - this was so easy to do , great taste and great time saver down the track. Made for Holiday Tag.

      Good tomato sauce. The peppers add a great taste. I only made about a third of the recipe and used it on pasta for lunch without adding any meat. I added the wine after the veggies but before adding the remaining ingredients and let it simmer for a couple of minutes. Before serving I added fresh basil and plenty of freshly grated parmesan.

      This is a terrific base sauce. I am freezing it in portions so i always have some for a quick pasta, tasted it just with some country bread and ended up eating a 2nd lunch :)
