It seems like we go through gallons of tomato sauce in our house. We use it to make pizza, in pasta, on fish and chicken, as a dip for vegetables and more. I like to make homemade sauce using fresh tomatoes from our farmers' market whenever they're in season, but when I can't get my hands on fresh, I make this version of my sauce with organic canned tomatoes. The recipe is really fast and easy and is versatile enough to use in most of your favorite recipes that call for a red sauce. Best of all, you can have it year round!
