For those of us who don't like sauces laden with tomato chunks (much as I like tomato-based foods, tomato chunks just gross me out!) and also happen to be way too lazy to peel and cut tomatoes (that's what cans are for.) For some variation ideas try replacing one of the cans of tomato sauce with tomato paste if you like it thicker. Like it really spicy? Replace one plain can with one can of pre-seasoned tomato sauce. Yummy dipping sauce for mozzarella sticks, serve 1/4 cup in a ramekin. Recommended dishes to have with this sauce: Recipe #394477, Recipe #30977, and Recipe #91274 if making pretzel cheese logs!
