Sauce was great!

By Anne F. 05/05/2008

I have a batch of the sauce recipe Ted Williams posted bubbling on the stove top right now and it was VERY good and tastes, to me, just like Prego. I did make a few modifications, because I was working with fresh tomatoes, and I think there may have been a typo in his recipe. So, FYI: instead of 2 28-ounce cans of crushed tomatoes, I used 7 cups of chopped fresh tomatoes that I simmered for 20 minutes. Also, I used one 15 oz and one 8 oz can of tomato sauce, and only 12 oz of tomato paste, because it was already quite thick. It seamed like if I went up to a full 28 ounces of paste, it would be way to thick.

Anyway, yeah, so glad Ted posted this recipe. It's delicious!
