Rated 3 out of 5 by mom2ian from Great basic sauce Tried this for dinner tonight. The recipe makes a great foundation for whatever your tastes may be. I like a basic sauce that I can tweak to both my kids and husbands tastes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jack17 from So great! Used 5 Roma tomatoes and 1 shallot due to using what I had in the house. Turned out excellent. I honestly couldn't believe how easy it was

Rated 4 out of 5 by angelaksams from Great 10min Sauce! Love this! Added an extra tablespoon of tomato paste and 1T olive oil. Blended for 7mins on level 10. No simmering. Just scooped it right on top of the pasta. Awesome!

Rated 5 out of 5 by TRenee from Fantastic Sauce! This was a super easy sauce and tastes so fresh! I didn't have Roma tomatoes on hand, so used regular tomatoes straight from the garden. I had to simmer it a bit longer to cook off the extra water from the regular tomatoes. Poured it over whole wheat angel hair spaghetti and had a delicious dinner! Love my Vitamix!

Rated 5 out of 5 by SandiT from Good easy sauce Couldn't believe how easy this is. Tweaked it by adding a little bit of crushed red pepper. Very versatile .

Rated 4 out of 5 by Lashawn73 from Great base recipe This was my first time attempting to make sauce from fresh tomatoes. So I was so happy when I found this recipe on the Vitamix site! I did add an extra dash of this and that to season to taste but this was a great 1st attempt!
