A no-frills, simple tomato pasta sauce that is great on its own or as a base to add vegetables, chicken, minced beef or whatever you fancy to it.
This was really good! My youngest daughter even said "it smells just like the jarred stuff". The whole family liked it. I substituted 1 1/2 tbsp grated parmesan cheese instead of the prepared cheese sauce and also added an extra clove of garlic (garlic lovers here). The only complaint? There wasn't more! I will definitely make this again but will double or triple the recipe. - 26 Aug 2001 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I tripled up this recipe, but used 1 part tomato paste for every 3 parts sauce to make it a little thicker. I also used an extra clove of garlic, some garlic powder, basil, and a bay leaf. The recipe by itself isn't outstanding, but it puts you right at the point where you can do some fun things tailored to your own taste. - 21 Feb 2005 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
This was really good. I added zucchini, mushrooms and beef. The beef really sucked up the juices, I would maybe add a little more water and tomato paste if adding beef. Great flavor, recommended! - 10 May 2002 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
