It’s taken me a while to be willing to share this recipe. You know when you make something that is just damn good, and it becomes your thing? That’s sauce for me. Well, at least to my kids it’s “mom’s thing.” The funny thing is it’s just a few ingredients, and I start with canned tomato sauce and paste. It’s so fast and easy but tastes like it should be an old family recipe from Nonna. (which I suppose someday it will be).
I would absolutely love to make sauce every week with garden fresh tomatoes, but I live in northern Illinois where our tomato season is so fast, if you blink, you’ll miss it, and I am a busy mom who sometimes has no idea what’s for dinner until about 5:00. This sauce is my go to on those days since I pretty much always have the ingredients in the pantry.
