I like it simple-- I use a jar of my home canned tomatoes, thick and chopped up.

Start by sauteing a half onion, chopped and one diced garlic clove.

Add a pint of chopped tomatoes, t. basil

t. oregano'

1/4 cup tomato paste (bought by the gallon and frozen in 1/4 c scoops)

My family doesn't like it any other way, but I like it with a dash of salt, a tsp of sugar and a half tsp of crushed red pepper.
