        Tasty and incredible easy. I make sure to use good quality can tomatoe. I've also used garden fresh tomatoe and it turn out great!

        This was my first homemade pasta sauce, so that alone was something for me to celebrate. I was thrilled at how easy it was to simmer the sauce and, most importantly, how delicious the final product was. The onions add a delightful texture to a sauce which is both rich and sweet. The whole family agreed that even on my first pass the sauce was better than anything we could buy off the shelf.
