Looks good hun... Could I make a suggestion though?
2 cans diced tomatoes (14.5 oz size)
2 containers of Pomi Tomato Sauce
Fresh tomatoes would make it soo much better...
I usually use fresh tomatoes but I didn't have any. I know what a sin!! I would forget my brain if it wasn't attached to my body. I swear having a
baby has sucked my brains dry! lol I always have tomatoes, always. I went to grab fresh ones and said a few words I can't say on here when I saw I
didn't have any. lol I always have diced tomatoes on hand for this reason.
Usually I'd probably use about a 10-12 vine ripped tomatoes. I would
just dice them up and toss them in instead of canned ones.
Skin the tomatoes... Pro tip: core the tomatoes and freeze them... then run them under cold water and the skins slip right off
I've never frozen tomatoes before. Good idea. I usually never have any left to freeze lol I use A LOT of tomatoes. What do you store them in? Ziplock
bags or a container? I will have to do this this weekend when I go grocery shopping. I can buy double and do this, that way when my brain shorts out I
have back up.
Its fresh, and no preservatives or other junk you get in canned materials...
Sorry but I don't think there is anything wrong with canned items but I actually use this Pomi
but not every store carries it however all stores have canned tomatoes. These are also more expensive than canned tomatoes.
When I post my recipes I tend to change parts to make it easier for everyone to find or make. I also know not everyone has time to make many of my
recipes so I change them accordingly. If I posted my truly 100% from scratch meat sauce and pasta it would take you all day to make. I make bread,
pasta and the sauce all from scratch but I usually reserve that for a day when my husband is home and a weekend.
Pomi is my favorite go to for Italian goodies. It's not in a can and it's all natural and imported from Italy. I know Publix carries it and so does
Big Lots. I find A LOT of good imported goods from Europe at Big Lots, who knew! I found some really good all natural semolina pasta there recently
and it was delicious! I can't stand enriched pasta! It just tastes wrong. lol
Thanks for the tomato freezing tid bit!
Your sauce sounds good too!
