Ingredients

How to make it

  • In a stockpot simmer the garlic and the dried pepper in the olive oil. Add a bit if needed to keep them moist and not brown, simmer for about 4 minutes.
  • Pour in the tomatoes, tomato paste, water, salt, pepper, sugar, and the basil.
  • Heat to a boil and then turn down to slow simmer
  • Sprinkle the cheese in and stir well so it melts as you stir instead of just sinking to the bottom and sticking to the pot.
  • Stir this often.
  • This will cook down and reduce.
  • This freezes well, if it lasts that long.

    Looks like a good recipe because we've got 2 good feedbacks here! I just try recipes with comments such as these as I'm just a beginner and just making sure I'm copying a winner. I just want to stock up as I try as much as possible not to depend on canned goods. Thank you so much! Especially Points! ;P
    P.s. I don't think I will be able to find romano cheese here in Manila. Can I use another cheese?

    Maybe one of these pictures are good enough for you to use for the main picture at the top of your recipe. You should be able to copy them to your computer, massage them in your photoshop software and repost.

    Was having another bowl of this tomato sauce while I was packaging it up for the refrigerator and thought how outstanding it would be with a few mushrooms in the sauce.Here's the tomato sauce standing tall in a slotted spoon.

    Very well done Borinda. A flavorful sauce. It holds up to a slotted spoon well too:Dang! Wrong picture! But it's got your sauce on them. Don't know why this picture keeps disappearing.

    How long do you let it reduce down? I have made some Meatballs for Lasagne by Twohot to go into the sauce to cook.
