Italian Tomato Sauce

Italian Tomato Sauce created by Joanne

I got this recipe from Lidia Bastianich's cookbook. It's a great recipe, the only change I made was I added garlic (my favorite ingredient). You can make this ahead and freeze it. So much better than jar sauce! If you cannot get San Marzano tomatoes, I recommend Colivata or Cento brands.

    Excellent. I used fire roasted tomatoes, and this was really, really good.
