I use a recipe that is very similar to yours, but to give an Italian flavor I always add oregano and garlic.

This is a great recipe, the kind of basic that moms should make sure all their kids know how to cook. If you can make this you can survive on little money! It is also much more healthy if you have conditions like high blood pressure or diabetes as you can control the amount of salt and sugar which can be very high in prepared sauces. Thanks very much for the post.
