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 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 2 out of 5 by JoshDC from Not very good I followed the directions to the letter and ended up with something that resembled tomato soup more than anything. The sauce would have turned out better (and with the same time) had I skipped the Vitamix and prepped the same ingredients in the traditional way.

Rated 2 out of 5 by mmsansone from Taste fine, but no better than a jar of sauce. This is a very basic recipe. While it's not bad, it's not great either. For the cost of the ingredients you could purchase a good jar of sauce.
