This is a great sauce. I found it to be missing a bit of richness, so I added one cup of chicken stock and let it reduce down, I also added some fresh basil right before serving. I served the sauce over spaghetti with homemade meatballs. The result was fantastic!

So I really enjoyed how basic this recipe was. I was in desperate need of utilizing too many left over Costco tomatoes and this was right up my alley. I didn't have tomato paste, but seeing a review wishing to omit anyway - I did. While I was sauteing the onions I felt like it was missing the "smell." So I added 3 cloves of grated garlic and dried basil. It turned out fantastic! I can still smell my sauce now - Yummy. Thanks for the recipe.

SOOO easy, but I wasn't crazy about the tomato paste. Since I was using garden fresh tomatoes, I wish I'd skipped the 'canned' paste because I think it took away from the flavor of the fresh tomatoes. Can't beat it for ease and it was good- just not quite what I was looking for tonight. Thanks for the submission!
