    I made this this weekend and used it in pizza roll ups ( and froze the rest for spaghetti later in the week) and it was yummy. Growing up, my mom always made her own spaghetti sauce and I DID NOT like it at all, so I have always stayed away from making my own, but I decided to try it out! I followed your recipe ( but added a little dried basil) and it was so good. My oldest daughter, who’s favorite food is spaghetti, said it was “Perfect”! I am going to make another big batch soon to freeze for some quick dinners!!! THANK YOU!

    I’m so glad you liked this, especially your daughter (kids can be so hard to please sometimes!) I love that it doesn’t have any preservatives or junk in it. Sometimes when it’s tomato season, like right now, I’ll blend up some fresh tomatoes from the garden and add it too the sauce and cook it up too. Good idea to use it in pizza roll ups!
