I rarely buy tomato sauce from the grocery store anymore because homemade sauce is really easy to make, I usually already have everything I need to make it, and it tastes SO MUCH BETTER than store-bought sauce. I was in a pasta mood, so I thought I would try A Thyme to Celebrate's tomato sauce and serve it over pasta for dinner.
I made a few changes from the original recipe. I substituted diced tomatoes for half of the crushed because I had a surplus of canned diced tomatoes in my cabinet. This made the sauce a bit chunkier than it would have been otherwise. I also opted for fresh basil instead of the Italian seasoning. I added the basil to the pot with the rest of the seasonings. I let it simmer on low for a good portion of the afternoon.
