Homemade Tomato Sauce ©2013
Welcome, Carl and I grew several tomato plants in my backyard and basil and wanted to use those vegetables in a recipe. I was getting tired of eating just tomato sandwiches. I hope you will try this Tomato Sauce recipe and share with us what delicious meals you want to prepare using it. I am hoping to use it for a new chili recipe or spaghetti sauce recipe for my crock-pot.  Enjoy!
