Tomato sauce- Really Easy, Really Good

This recipe appeared in the Boston Globe Food Section and it is so easy I am hoping you will try it as a substitute to store bought tomato sauce. Italy's Little Kitchen created the recipe, and recommends : you "use a good brand of canned whole tomatoes, crushed in a bowl yields the most flavorful results". Adapted from an August 2012 article about Italy’s Little Kitchen 1239 Hancock Street , Quincy Ma
