This is an adopted recipe. I am always on the lookout for freezer recipes so that's why I chose to add this one to my collection. Orignal introduction; "I discovered this recipe in a German home and living magazine as a pizza sauce. But I did have some leftover and soon discovered that you can easily use it as a basic pasta sauce or even as tomato soup adding a bit of cream. It freezes well, so feel free to multiply the ingredients. I usually pack a couple of jars when we go on vacation, so I don't have to fuss too much about dinner. These are the original ingredients, but I usually add more garlic and sun-dried tomatoes if they are easily available. In summer I add fresh basil."
