This is an easy basic recipe. I added a dash of tobasco sauce and some red pepper flakes to give the sauce more of a kick. I also processed the ingredients on low for 10 seconds in my vitamix before simmering in order to give it a smoother texture. Will make this recipe again.

This red sauce was a total hit! However, I pureed the sauce in a cuisinart before I served/cooked with it. (My husband hates chunky sauce.)That made the texture AWESOME, and perfect for the chicken parmesan recipe.

This was a very good red sause. The only thing I was not expecting it to be so chuncky from the diced tomatoes. Also I got 4 cups out of the recipe when it said it made 6 cups.

This is a very nice, quick red sauce. I used it with Italian sausage and it's great!
