This homemade Tomato Sauce has a lovely fresh flavor that can be used for spaghetti, ravioli, chicken Parmesan, pizza, or anything else that you need tomato sauce!  This is an easy-to-make Basic Tomato Sauce made from canned tomatoes and seasoned to your tastes.  This tomato sauce only takes about 15 minutes, from start to finish, to make, plus it is so much better than the “stuff” you get in a jar.

I love this easy-to-make tomato sauce.  So – why buy the jarred tomato sauce when you can very simply make your own basic tomato sauce?
